Number Playdough Mats for Fine Motor Development

PDF | 21 pages|Grades: K, F - F

A set of playdough mats covering the numbers 0-20 to help children develop their fine motor skills and identify numbers to 20.

Print and laminate these playdough mats and have children re-create the different numbers with playdough.

They then roll balls of play dough to represent that number in the tens frame below the number.

This early years activity assists with fine motor development and number understanding.
