Summer will be over soon and that means, school will be starting. Invite your toddlers in to the first day Back to School celebrations with these fun Playdough Mats. These are not only fun, but a great way to introduce toddlers to school time and include them as you begin with the older kids.
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
