Turn playtime with playdough into an educational adventure with these Ocean Colors Playdough Mats.

Benefits of Playing with the Ocean Colors Playdough Printables

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 experimenting and problem-solving. Children can try different approaches to completing the tasks without breaking anything—because it’s just dough!

The Ocean Colors Playdough Mats will also encourage language and literacy. Students will learn or review some new vocabulary words such as seaweed, jellyfish, and stingray.

Students will also learn or review these color words: green, purple, red, orange, gray, blue, and pink.

Creating with playdough is also wonderful for children because it gives them a sense of pride when they complete a task.
