I love this set of 0-10 number playdough mats.
If you want an extra fun set of play doh mats that are perfect for learning about numbers with, these are it!
My LO’s absolutely love creating with playdough but sometimes a little extra engaging fun can be introduced to incorporate a bit of play and learn in one.
These counting playdough mats are not only fun, they require absolutely no prep at all.
Just print and go!
We love inserting these number mat sheets within one of our pre-made busy books for on the go.
If you plan on:
Going on a vacation
Waiting for your food at a restaurant
On an airplane
While waiting anywhere that takes a bit of time and your LO is there with you
… then this set of number mats printable sheets are for you!
We love adding playdough to a zip lock bag and bringing our busy book with these sheets within it for some play to learn fun.
We will practice one number and move on to another the following day.
Talk about the colors your LO chose to use in building their numbers.

How we use the Counting Playdough Mats
These number playdough mats are fun to use in many ways and for a differentiated set of ages.
If you are teaching a little toddler, we like to point at the sheet with all the numbers (sheet 16 and sheet 28).
These are perfect for inserting into a busy book and matching with their foam numbers.
It is a great sheet for on the go for pointing and learning with.
Have a preschooler?
Take it a bit further and add your letter magnets to sheet 16 and sheet 28 for matching onto.
We bring out the playdough and build the letters on each sheet and talk about the numbers as we go.
Kindergarteners can practice adding and subtracting with two sheets after building the letters.
Making learning fun is one of my favorite things to do and I hope you love these as much as my littles do!
