Salt Fall Writing Tray Handwriting Practice- How to:

Making a salt tray is super easy! Take salt as per the size of the tray. The salt shoudl be enough to spread out across the tray. Put the salt in a ziplock bag, add food coloring, in this case I used orange color. Zip the bag up and start smooshing the salt to mix the food coloring well with the salt. 
Once all the color has evenly coated the salt, pour the colored salt in a tray to dry up. It may take a few hours for it to dry and get ready for our handwriting salt tray activity.
