We tried salt writing for the first time today. I felt that Caleb was ready to try writing letters since he could already sound out both uppercase and lowercase letters.
1. Container for salt – I used a cake pan
2. 1/4 cup of iodized salt
3. Flash cards
Started with an easy letter. Lowercase letter “L”. Then I let Caleb choose what letter he wanted to do next. He chose “V”. Here he is writing it.
He also wrote “C” for Caleb. We just did those three letters and he just wanted to draw scribbles on the salt. I didn’t push him to do more letters since the main objective was to have fun and learn at the same time. We can try other letters next time 🙂
This activity can get messy, so make sure to do it in a place that’s a breeze to clean up. I had to find out the hard way. HAHAHAHA! Activity was fun and delicious for Caleb ( since he loves all things salty).

Looks like fun.
Thanks! I try to make learning as fun as possible for him 🙂
We used to write in the sand with our toes and in colored hair gel inside zip loc bags. My kiddos loved it. Do you know about KONOS? It’s all experiential learning.
Looked it online just now 🙂 I’ll try the colored hair gel! Sounds like fun!
