These mats are designed to be an easy, quiet brain break for the students when they are stuck indoors on those rainy Spring days. Three of the mats are filled with puzzles that the students can complete individually or in pairs. One is left blank to allow for free drawing or the creation of their own puzzles.
Each 8 x 11 mat can be interchangeably put together, laminated, and given to the students to complete with wet erase markers. It not only makes them instantly reusable, but a HUGE hit with the kids (as we all know they love to use wet erase markers!)
These are great! Can't wait to have the kids try them.

Lots of fun for a rainy day. No indoor recess game parts all over the room...

What a great idea! I usually have kept 'fun' activity sheets that I've had to keep duplicating as they were used. Your mats are one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" ideas!! Thanks for offering them as a freebie!

Great idea! I'm NOT wishing for rainy days, but now at least I have something "up my sleeve" when they happen!
