Even though we talk about what Resurrection Day really means for us as Christians with our children from an early age, I still want to have activities for them on their level. As Easter approaches, we do incorporate Resurrection studies in to our schoolwork more and these playdough mats are a great way to keep them occupied while we read from the Bible or as I’m working with the older children.
Playdough mats are great for working on counting, fine motor skills and even letter recognition. I recommend printing each page (preferably on cardstock, but printer paper will work too) and then laminating them for longevity. The nice thing about these mats is that they really are multi-purpose. You can use them with playdough for younger kids and then graduate to wipe-off markers as they get more fine motor skills. You can also use a variety of objects to place in the little boxes to help kids with their counting. My girls also love to use pom-poms to count.
Included in this set:
- 4 Letter Playdough Mats
- 1-10 Number Playdough Mats
