My kids absolutely LOVE playdough mats – well, truthfully anything to do with playdough. So if we can add in some fun learning while we’re playing, why not? This set of Dung Beetle Life Cycle Playdough Mats are a great way to occupy your toddlers while teaching the older kids about this fascinating insect.

Practice letter formations and counting while honing those fine motor skills with these fun Dung Beetle Life Cycle Playdough Mats!! {14 total pages} :: www.inallyoudo.net

I recommend printing each of these pages (on cardstock preferably, 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 love to use pom-poms to count and sort.

Included in this set:

  • 4 Letter Playdough Mats
  • 1-10 Number Playdough Mats

I have so many titles at the tip of my fingers in just minutes!

Whether you like insects or not, studying their life cycles are so fun and fascinating. Introduce the Dung Beetle with these fun coloring pages! :: www.inallyoudo.netA
