With the school year right around the corner I’m preparing to homeschool my preschooler. This wasn’t part of our plan but based on the fact my family is very high risk amid the current world situation, we’re opting to keep our little girl home from preschool this school year.
With that in mind, I’ve started coming up with ideas and plans to homeschool her in anticipation of kindergarten the following year. My number one priority is making her learning a fun experience. So, hands on and sensory learning is a must.
These 26 free printable Alphabet Play-Doh Mats for kids were created with my 4.5 year old in mind. She’s smart as a whip but fares far better when learning is sensory and very hands on. She also adores playing with Play-Doh so I knew that this would be a win win situation in our home.
