There’s just something about playing with playdough that captures kids’ attention. I loved playdough as a child. Every child I knew loved playdough. In fact, I don’t think I’ve met a kid yet who doesn’t like playdough. (Of course, now that I’ve said that, I’ll probably meet one tomorrow.)
When I was young, I had no idea that playing with playdough could be educational, but it can! Preschool playdough mats can be used to build fine motor skills, to make shapes, and to learn to form letters and numbers.
These alphabet and number winter playdough mats are perfect for little ones who are working on numbers and letters this year! Read on to see how to get your copy!

Kids can roll playdough into “ropes” and then connect them to form the uppercase and lowercase letters.
