Bird Seed Sensory Writing Tray for Preschoolers
Set up this unique sensory writing experience for your preschooler this spring or while exploring a Bird Theme. My preschooler had fun forming letters and much more in a tray of bird seed!

Keeping things simple with my preschooler is definitely something I have tried implementing in our homeschool activities. And our latest activity for our Creative Preschool Bird Theme is probably one of our most simple and fun activities yet!
Pour a small amount of bird seed onto a tray-- a little goes a long way. You just want the tray covered with a thin layer.
Add in flashcards and a something to write with and have your child practice making numbers, letters, words, lines, designs in the tray of bird seed.
This writing tray is a great activity to explore the sense of touch and provides a unique sensory experience for your preschooler. Add in some feathers to use the feather's tip as a writing utensil to write out letters or be brave and just let your child explore the feel of the bird seed with his/her finger.
When you are all done, just dump the bird seed outside and do some bird watching!
