I cannot believe we are already talking about St. Patrick’s Day! It seems like just yesterday it was Christmas. These days and months go by faster and faster, the *ahem* older I get. We are gearing up for some big changes in our house, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a few minutes out of our day to play! These playdough mats are perfect for a little fun time, while learning. They also coordinate beautifully with the Tot & PreK-K pack I created a couple years ago.
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
