Playdough mats assist with the development of the following skills:
Strength and motor control in the hands through squishing, rolling, and flattening the dough.
Children can use their imaginations to create ANYTHING out of a ball of dough.
Children can learn to take turns, share materials, and problem solve while using playdough.
Ask your child what they are making, talk about colors, shapes, and objects as you create.
Use playdough to develop pre-academic skills such as letter and number identification, color identification, and object identification. More advanced learners can work on spelling, 1:1 correspondence, and associated items as well!
