Sand or salt trays are easy to make, and are often shown for letter practice, but can also be used to develop pre-writing skills when paired with cards for simple shapes and lines. Simply gently shake or rake to start on the next drawing.

.copy patterns in sand, or rice, or on paper... these various patterns help kids develop the muscle memory needed to recreate these shapes to later form full letters. Great for developing motor skills and a fun pre-writing activity that I've always found to be a big hit with three year olds in particular

Writing in salt. It is an awesome way for a child to use more of his or her brain while learning letters (or anything). The whole body connection (finger/arm/eyes/textures) that occurs helps both imprint the knowledge and stimulate the brain. This site has Montessori & Montessori-inspired activities. I still remember doing these things in preschool!
A salt tray to help little ones draw letters and feel how the letter is formed. Great learning activity

Fish in the Sea Counting Game-Math Center idea. I would do numbers 10-21 and start with simple counting/recognition; eventually turn it to an adding and/or subtraction game with dice. Could also do single dice and grab bag element where kids draw sea animal cards that say things like "add one" or "double number", etc.

fish in the sea counting game - just use old egg carton and label with numbers for your own diy sorter and use goldfish or other things to use as sorters.
Fish in the Sea Counting Game from @lakeshorelearning #Preschool Activities - #Math @momsshoppingengine.com #slideshows
Fish in the Sea Counting Game: Cut the lid off of your egg carton. Paint the egg carton blue. Set it aside to dry. Once the paint is dry, decorate the outside of the egg carton with sea life stickers. If you don’t have stickers, you can cut sea animals out of construction paper and glue them to the carton. Write the numbers 1-12 on the inside bottom of each egg cup.
Fish in the Sea Counting Game that you can make yourself! Buy an ice cube tray and number it from 1-12 in the spaces below. Or, you could use the bottom of a CLEANED egg carton container to number. Grab some goldfish as counters, and decorate with some foam stickers from the dollar store!
