My kids absolutely love when I pull out the playdough and just let them create. But, sometimes I want them to work on those fine motor skills or their letters and numbers. So, we use fun playdough mats. Today you can download these Types of Snakes Playdough Mats.
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:
- 2 Letter Playdough Mats
- 1-10 Number Playdough Mats
If you’re looking for some great readers to use while learning about snakes, check out these great titles. Many are probably available at your local library, or you could get a Kindle version for most of them on Amazon. I love using my Kindle Reader app to read with my kids. I have so many titles at the tip of my fingers in just minutes!
