PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These multi-purpose Candy Cane playdough mats are a fun, open-ended, candy-themed activity that will make a great addition to your toddler, preschool, kindergarten, or homeschool classroom.

Included in this bundle of Candy Cane playdough mats are:

* 10 numeral mats with over-sized candy cane graphics
* 7 shape mats with over-sized candy cane graphics (2D shapes:
circle, rectangle, square, triangle, oval, hexagon, and rhombus)
* 3 Teacher pages of my favorite playdough recipe with cooking
tips and variations

Playing on a printable, laminated mat will boost a child's engagement with playdough, one of the time-honored traditions in daycare, preschool, kindergarten, and beyond. Whether you use a commercial product or my favorite homemade Peppermint playdough recipe (included), this material has the potential for general fun and specific skill-building by:

* increasing hand strength and bilateral coordination
* exercising and improving pincer and tripod grasps
* expanding vocabulary (pinch, poke, pull, stretch)

Print and laminate (or insert into page protectors) the downloadable pdf Candy Cane playdough mats. Then as you sit with the young child, talk about squeezing, patting, rolling the playdough into ropey snakes to form the numerals and shapes. My students enjoy adding pony beads, sequins and plastic gems for more fun.

Besides using them for creating with playdough, the Candy Cane Play Mats can also be used with other materials easily gathered. My preschoolers have used the play mats with chenille stems (pipe-cleaners), pom-poms, plastic pony beads, seeds, smooth stones, dry beans, foam shapes, and Wikki Stix (tm). Use your imagination and you'll think of even more uses for the Play Mats!
