I have several favorite Christmas movies that I like to watch every year. Many of them were books first, so we like to read the book and then watch the movie. A Christmas Carol is one of those movies I love. My little ones like to watch the Mickey Mouse version, while I prefer the original. A couple of years ago I created a fun Scrooge Mini Unit, so this year I decided to create some Playdough Mats for the little ones to work on their counting and fine motor skills while we read through the story.
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
- 1-10 Number Playdough Mats
