ABC Play Dough Mats are a fun way to work on letter recognition as well as develop fine motor skills.

Your little learners will have hours of fun with these alphabet themed play dough mats! {Free for a limited time!}

Children can’t learn how to write without first perfecting the fine motor skill of pencil grasp.  Using play dough, shaving cream, or even pasta helps a child do just that while having fun. This pre writing stage is essential to future handwriting success. You simply can not skip this crucial stage if you want your child to write successfully.

I know what you’re thinking. Yet another thing to add into your already packed homeschool schedule? By using mats like these, you can work on letter recognition and sounds at the same time as fine motor. My motto here in Autismland is work smarter not harder.  Young children also learn best through play which should be at the forefront of any educational schedule. Your child won’t even know they are learning how to read and increasing their hand strength.

Children with autism tend to have poor fine motor skills which have to be worked on at occupational therapy. Ideas like these help you do therapy at home completely or enhance the therapy sessions your child attends.  One way to afford autism is to make the most of your therapy dollars by continuing to work on objectives outside the therapy center.

These mats are easy to print and laminate for use over and over again. Lose a letter? Just reprint and laminate again.

Make a set for your house, Grandma’s house or even the car for traveling.

  3. I love these so much! Half way through the print job my printer ink died. I ordered more and installed it but came back to website to reprint but it has expired. Any way you could email it to me so i can print the rest? My daughter has loved it so far and has been doing great with tracing and identifying so far. 🙂
