These Valentine's Day Playdough Mats are perfect for PreK, Kindergarten, and First Grade students. My kindergarteners use these Vday counting mats throughout February, using Sweetheart Candies as counters. Students can also use erasers, play dough, pom poms, linking cubes, legos, or counters to work with the mats. Laminate the Valentine's Day mats and use them with dry erase markers!
