These play dough mat counting activities are a great tool in teaching counting, coordination, problem solving and number recognition. I had so much fun designing each of these counting activities and making them bright and fun, and my 4-year old son had a ball putting these together. It was neat to see him sounding out the words, saying the number and thinking about what the objects he needed to make looked like. When he made the coins for the piggy bank he first made little balls. Then he realized that they didn't look like coins. I asked him what we could do with the balls to make them look more like a coin. He got a big smile on his face and went to town smashing the balls.
