These play dough mats are fun, engaging, and easy to implement STEM activities! Just print, laminate, and add playdough!  STEM Playdough Mats would be a wonderful addition to your STEM or STEAM activities/centers, your Maker Space, morning tubs,  fast finishers, or for strengthening small muscle control! I use these with my kiddos during the first day of school.  They are a great way to get to know your kiddos!  They are also awesome for when they are finished with their work during those first days when you are trying to get your classroom routines and procedures up and running!
