Benefits of Playing with the Easter Playdough Mats
When we think of playdough play, we know that all the squishing, twisting, and turning boosts fine motor skills, but playing with playdough also develops creativity, problem-solving skills, and language.
Playdough play encourages creativity and imagination. The playdough images on the mats are empty. Your student will need to imagine and build the eggs. Students will use playdough to add details to the mats such as dots and lines and zigzags. Your student could also add playdough details to the small eggs and sunshine on the page.
You could also add beads or buttons for extra fun.
Children can try different approaches to completing the tasks without breaking anything—because it’s just dough! Your student might make an Easter egg and decide that he doesn’t like it–no problem. Just start again with a new idea. This encourages problem-solving skills as well as flexibility.
Creating with playdough is also wonderful for children because it gives them a sense of pride when they complete a task.
If you want to turn this Easter activity into a sensory experience, you could make edible playdough and use jelly beans or other candies for details. Fun!
