Add mats to your play dough center to support academic skills like counting. Your play dough center can be a great place for preschoolers to develop fine motor skills, use their imaginations, explore their own ideas, practice social skills, and work independently or cooperatively. The playdough center can even help support important emergent literacy and math skills.
