I know I’ve said this before, but my youngest daughter absolutely loves Playdough Mats. I mean, like its a serious obsession now. But frankly, I love them too. I love that she can be semi-involved with our theme while working at her level. She loves to work with playdough and it is helping develop her fine motor skills. The only problem we have is keeping the middle two out of the playdough while they are supposed to be working. So, occasionally playdough mats become a family affair and everyone is happy…for at least 5 minutes.
I know Groundhog Day is just a one-day fun event, but we like to do it up big in our house! So these playdough mats coordinate great with the other printables I have made to make a fun-filled day. 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
