Our four sweet little birds are doing great, so far as I can tell. They are still snuggled in their nest and staying warm and dry, as a strange cold front has swept through our area with all this rain. Their feathers are coming in more and more and filling out the nest, where it is almost impossible to tell them apart now – except for their tiny little beaks sticking up. If you haven’t seen our feathered friends, check them out on my Instagram!

Do your little ones love watching birds fly through the yard and to their nests? Then they will love these adorable Birdwatching Playdough Mats! Includes 4 letters and numbers 1-10. ::

In honor of our feathered friends camping out on the electric box, I have created some birdwatching playdough mats for your little ones. 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
