How fun is playdough or Play-Doh? There are so many educational benefits to playing with playdough AND if you pair it with one of our playdough printables like this name recognition playdough mat- it is SUCH fun learning!
We are having an impromptu playdough series going on at the moment. What can I say, when inspiration strikes, you have to oblige:) I shared playdough letter mats too have you seen it? AND there is a Playdough Pack available too with even more printable activities. Today I have a free name recognition mat for you! Perfect for Bak-toSchool time!
Simply print and laminate the printable, or use a dry-erase pocket, provide tubs or home-made playdough(have you tried our microwave version yet?) and you have a great activity for your young one!
Find the letters in your name and then make your name with playdough! This is great for children that can already identify letters of their names. TIP: If you have young learners, make individual mats and circle the letters of their names before laminating it.
A super fun way to practice name recognition before your child goes to school as a busy activity or in a classroom’s playdough or literacy center!
Find the printable on our Freebies page, follow instructions below:
