Benefits of Using Playdough Mats in Preschool

Playdough mats are a great tool for preschoolers because not only are young children exposed to art in a fun way, but they are also using their hands and engaging their senses while doing so. 

When students roll and form play dough, they are developing fine motor skills that will help them with pencil control in the future.
