Playdough Mats for Fine Motor Development

Have you tried out playdough mats in your classroom yet? If not, here’s a quick rundown on how they benefit young learners.

Playdough mats can be a useful tool for developing fine motor skills in children. These mats typically feature various shapes, numbers, and letters that can be traced or filled with playdough. This helps to strengthen the muscles in the fingers and hands, which is important for tasks such as writing and manipulating small objects. Additionally, playdough mats can also help to improve hand-eye coordination and visual-spatial skills
