Here's a Valentine's themed salt tray for the light table that's great for toddlers and preschoolers to practice their writing. Both of my boys like to write so we used this writing tray as a way to practice writing Valentine's themed words and shapes. It's a quick and simple Valentine's Day light table activity to set up!

The feathers were perfect for practicing writing and helped to encourage good fine motor skills. J practiced writing words like heart and love in the salt. He also drew some hearts freehand and traced some of the plastic hearts.

The boys also liked to press the plastic hearts into the salt to make little heart impressions. They continued to do these impressions for a few minutes before declaring they were all done. So it wasn't major success in their books, but it did keep them busy for like 10 minutes.
