I am so excited to use these fun U.S. President’s Playdough Mats with Punkin on Monday. They really are a win-win-win for us. She loves to work with playdough, it helps her with fine motor skills and she stays occupied, but involved while I work with the other kids. They are also a great reward for my other kids, because they love them too – but only get to use them after all their other work is completed.
These playdough mats coordinate great with the other Presidential printables I have made to make a fun-filled day. 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
