Benefits of Using ABC Playdough Mats in Preschool

  • Playdough mats are a great tool for teaching letters because not only are young children exposed to letters in a fun way, but they are also using their hands and engaging their senses while doing so. In turn, they are more likely to remember the letters in the future.
  • When students roll and form play dough, they are developing fine motor skills that will help them with pencil control in the future.
  • When students form the letters with play dough, they also learn about forming letters. This experience will transfer when they begin learning to write letters.

This set of play-dough mats includes a page for each letter of the alphabet and is available in three different fonts. Primary fonts included are D’Nealian, Zaner-Bloser, and Open Dyslexic.

Print and laminate each page for multiple use and easy cleaning.
