This Shamrock Sensory Tray for St. Patrick’s Day is made for toddlers and preschoolers. The nice-smelling salt tray can be used to practice pre-writing skills, as well as to learn to pour, build and even make a volcano ( my son’s idea.) Make sure to provide cookie cutters, spoons and plastic cups to go with this salt tray. Because mint is considered a stimulant, this tray is better played with early during the day.
