How to use these playdough mats
Use these mats to help kids strengthen their knowledge of shapes; as well as develop fine motor skills using playdough and/or do-a-dot markers!
Print out each mat in color or black and white.
Have the kids read the word on the mat or help them read it out. Then, they will trace the word and make the object on the mat.
Be sure that you have the play dough, dry erase markers, and markers ready at the table for the kids to use.
Fall fine motor activities with dough mats
When using these mats with play dough, have the kids build small balls or snakes to build the shape shown on each mat.
They will also identify the fall vocabulary words and then write them using markers.
This can also be played in groups. Give each group the same mat and have the kids build their music note and identify the matching note words.
These activities are great for hand strengthening. We need a variety of ideas to work on finger muscles.
After they’re done, check their mats and the group with the best-looking mat (all filled with play dough) and correctly written note words wins!
