Learning about our bodies is important for children, for many reasons. We need to learn to identify body parts for health and safety, just to name one. This playdough mat set is the perfect way for little ones to learn about their bodies because it is interactive and fun!
If your kids love playdough like mine, they will be begging to do this activity!
Body Parts Playdough Mat Game
I love it when I can turn something that is important to learn about into a game! This is a perfect example. This set comes with two mats, a color version, and a black & white version. The third page of the set is a dice. This will need to be cut out and folded, but it works so well!
We love this Dice Writing Activity!
You will need a few supplies to prep this activity
To start, laminate the body part mat.
Next cut out the dice. There are flaps that need to be folded as well as folding on the crease lines. Once this is done, either tape or glue the flaps to the inside of the dice. It makes a pretty square which is perfect for tossing up in the air and getting a random result.
When you roll the dice, a body part is shown. Have your child create that body part with playdough on the mat.

Roll the dice again and repeat. You can do this until all of the mat is filled with body parts.
You could also do this with multiple children. Each child rolls the dice separately and puts that body part on the mat. This way you can challenge them to see who finishes the mat first.
