Snowman Playdough Mats
Winter is such a fun time of the year for activities! The arctic tray activity, where we learned how to make instant snow was exciting. We’ve done the snowman craft already and we are working on early math skills with these winter pattern cards and number playdough mats.
As you may have seen, I put kids play trays together for my daughter. If it fits on a tray, it goes in a tray. This minimizes mess and gives my daughter a clear “work” area.
You can use them in a few different ways. You can use the one without the tracing words to play a memory match type of game with your class.
You can also place the shapes around the room and have children jump on the correct shape. (You can even just cut around the actual shape and have the class jump to the shape.
They can be used with expo markers, playdough, both or just one of them.
You can check the preview file of what is included here.
The shapes that are included are:
There are a few other shapes included, but they are not a part of the tracers since I did not have shapes for that.
I have also included some tracing cards with the most adorable little clip art. It begins with a basic curvy line, which is a foundational skill of getting children to be able to write shapes. They are also good for left to right progression and it is a good crossing the midline type of activity.
