This time, I’m sharing with your our new set of free printable Valentines Play Dough Mats.
These are the perfect activity to try with your toddlers and preschoolers on this sweet holiday as they provide countless hours of imaginative play.
Why? Because playdough can be molded into any possible shape; think hearts, flowers, butterflies, balls, cubes, and even abstract forms.
Imaginative play lets kids train their brains to think creatively, which will help them make decisions and solve problems in the future.
If done in groups, creative play can also improve your children’s social and communication skills. They can learn empathy, generosity, collaboration, emotional control, and new vocabulary.
If you want to help your kids explore their creativity, you should incorporate these playdough mats into their day!
You can use this chance to make your own playdough like this strawberry playdough. Or you can turn this activity into some sensory play by adding different textures and smells.
They can also be gifted on Valentine’s Day along with some play-doh containers.
As you can see, there are multiple uses for these printable mats. If you want to download them now, go to the end of this post.
