Our wooden sand writing tray is the perfect learning resource to develop early marking making and letter formation. Using sand is a tactile and sensory way to help your child become confident with forming letters and numbers. They can use their finger or the writing stick to make the marks in the sand and it can be easily wiped away to encourage them to practice and not worry about getting it wrong.
There are so many opportunities for learning with our sand tray. It can be used for forming numbers or shapes and great for practicing pre-writing lines. The slot at the top of the tray fits A6 flashcards perfectly and can be used with our alphabet and number flashcards which can be found in our learning resource section. The board has been made long enough that children can begin to write simple cvc words as demonstrated in the photos.
Our sand tray is 30cm long and 14cm wide. It is made from beech wood and is sanded smooth to touch.
It comes with a small bag of play sand and a wooden tracing stick.
