Playdough is a great activity for small hands to reinforce and strengthen developing fine motor skills. Your students will love filling in and creating objects to correspond with the theme on their mat. Each mat is on an 8.5 x 11 page and includes a colourful background to enhance creativity. The mats can also be printed on an 11 x 17 page by simply changing the settings when you go to print.
These mats can connect to STEM or STEAM as well and can be utilized for different grade levels. I have used them with my Kindergartens as well as with my Grade 4s. To challenge older thinkers, there are a variety of different perspectives included (some birds' eye view, some horizontal). The mat themes also come in a variety of sizes, which encourages students to think critically about the size of each object they make and how it will fit into the mat.
***Please be aware that these are in colour only, as the b&w version eliminates the quality of the majority of the backgrounds. However, you would be able to choose to print them in greyscale if you preferred.
I recommend printing on card stock from your home or school printer on an 8.5 x 11 page (or 11 x 17) and laminating for long-term classroom use.
