These multi-purpose Fall Playdough Mats are a fun, open-ended, fall-themed activity that will make a great addition to your toddler, preschool, kindergarten, or homeschool classroom. 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 your favorite homemade version, playdough 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 Fall Playdough Mats. Then as you sit with the young child, talk about adding seeds to the sunflower, kernels to the corn, apples to the trees, vines in the pumpkin patch, and acorns or berries to the leaves. They can also turn pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns and add candles to Halloween cupcakes. My students also utilized the lines and shapes in the borders to add to their playdough fun.
Besides using them for creating with playdough, the 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!
Included in this bundle of fall-themed Preschool Playdough Mats are:
10 black line fall designs with colorful fall borders
7 color fall designs with two-toned chevron borders
