Turn playtime with playdough into an adventure on the high seas with these Pirate Colors Playdough Mats.
Benefits of Playing with the Pirate 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 Pirate Colors Playdough Mats will also encourage language and literacy. Students will learn or review some new vocabulary words such as parrot, cutlass, chest, and coins.
Students will also learn or review these color words: blue, black, yellow, green, brown, red, and gray.
Creating with playdough is also wonderful for children because it gives them a sense of pride when they complete a task.
