As we have been talking about fine motor skills over the course of several blog posts, having a variety of activities to offer children to practice these skills is not only fun, but it takes boredom and monotony out of the equation completely.
In this post, we will show you how you can target several skills with one activity.
Here, we target Language Arts (alphabet letter formation and left-to-right letter formation), sensory tasks and formation of shapes through these playdough alphabet games for fine motor skills.

So, saying that we will make play dough letters sounds like for to a child, right?
But it actually is a great activity to practice and encourage fine motor skills in preschoolers.
All you need is: a set of play dough in several colors, an alphabet play dough mat and a sheet protector or laminator.
The play dough letter mats can be downloaded from a website or they can be made at home with cardstock paper and a marker.
Either way, the important thing is that the games will be fun and educational.
Some fine motor skills examples are letters, numbers, shapes and even symbols.
The sky is the limit!
