Fish Fine Motor Mats
These easy no prep pattern play dough mats are perfect for early learning skills in preschool and kindergarten.
You can laminate them or add them to dry-erase pockets to continue using them over and over.
Grab your favorite homemade or store-bought play dough, and encourage your kids to roll out the play dough into long snakes to cover the lines on these fine motor skill mats. Glittery play dough adds an extra element of sensory fun!
They can mimic the patterns on the fish or create their own! Whatever they choose, they are getting great fine motor practice.
If you don’t have play dough or don’t want to use play dough, you can also trace them using dry-erase markers as well! Invite your kids to trace the lines using various colors of markers and trace the lines to reflect the fish’s patterns.
Another great option is to use buttons, mini erasers, or other seasonal loose parts to create lines and patterns.
