Here’s a set of math play dough mats for the Spring season. Play Dough Counting Mats combine fine motor and math skills in a fun way. You can find many more Play Dough Mats here.
These will work whether you are doing an Easter theme or a Plants/Garden theme.
The top of each mat says “Plant [#] carrots for the rabbit to eat.” Children will identify the numeral, and count out that amount of carrots to plant in the dirt. Children can create the carrots with bits of orange play dough to place on the mat. If you prefer to use something other than play dough, you could cut out simple carrot shapes from orange craft foam or felt.
I also made a mat that does not have a number, but simply says, “Plant some carrots for the rabbit to eat.” This mat is for toddlers who are not ready for counting yet, but need to practice fine motor skills with play dough.
