Benefits of Playing with the Gingerbread Man 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 gingerbread people and the gingerbread house. Students will use playdough to add details to the mats such as gumdrops, lollipops, icing, and peppermints. These are so much fun.
Children can try different approaches to completing the tasks without breaking anything—because it’s just dough! Your student might make some purple candy pieces and decide that she doesn’t like it–no problem. Just start again with a new idea. This encourages problem-solving skills.
Creating with playdough is also great because children will have a sense of pride when they finish one of the gingerbread mats.
