Learning about farm animals is not only a lot of fun for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners, but it can also be educational in a number of different ways.
These farm animal play dough mats, for instance, give your child the opportunity to work on colors, fine motor skills, pencil grasp, and more!
Whether you’re talking about the different sounds that the animals make or are wanting to add some fine motor work to your preschool farm theme, these farm animal play dough mats are a ton of fun and can provide hours of learning!
Now, we love using play dough mats because while we love playing with play dough on its own and can usually come up with some pretty creative things to make and build, sometimes you need a little help to get those creative juices flowing and play dough mats work perfectly for that.
They quickly give you a starting point and then you can just take it from there.
These farm animal play dough mats, for example, got us started with the farm theme and then we took it and ran with it by making a fence to hold our animals in, some haystacks, and even a makeshift barn to top it all off.
Using the Farm Animal Play Dough Mats
Included in this set are nine different animals that you might find on the farm.
Each animal is on its own full-size page to give small hands enough room to work and includes the sentence I can make a, followed by the name of the animal in a traceable font giving preschoolers and kindergartners plenty of practice with both their handwriting skills and their pencil grasp.
Just print the pages out, laminate them so that you can use them with play dough and dry erase markers over and over again, and you’re ready to go!
They’ll go perfectly with the rest of the activities in our farm preschool theme, take no time at all to throw together, and yet still provide hours of fun!
