The next few days I will be sharing some new Jonah & the Whale printables. This is a wonderful story of fear and running from God, then realizing His plans are truly greater than ours and surrendering your life to Him. Kids love the story, because of the whale swallowing a man, but I love this story for the lessons it teaches.
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
