My kids love days when I get out the playdough. They love using their imaginations to create something they envision. My youngest daughter loves when I get out the playdough mats for her to practice letters and counting.
They have been a great help to her recognizing and remembering her numbers. It is also a great sensory activity for kids, as they use their hands to mold the clay and then roll out the numbers or letters.
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 also love to use pom-poms to count.
Included in this set:
- 4 Letter Playdough Mats
