What to Do

Begin by pouring about 1/2 cup of salt into a plastic bag and a few drops of food coloring. Seal your plastic bag and squish until everything has been mixed well.

Next, pour your orange-colored salt onto a tray. You can allow it to dry for a bit (about 15-30 minutes) or you can begin working with it right away. We noticed our fingers turned a tiny bit orange because we used ours right away but the coloring washed right off.

Then,  download and print the carrot alphabet cards. Or, if you are already a current newsletter subscriber, click here to access our resource library of free printables.

For added durability, you can laminate the carrot cards.

You could even practice math or spelling with the salt tray. You might even notice your child is more eager to practice those skills if it involves using a salt tray.
