My four-year old has so much fun with these. She already knows how to count, but she still has difficulty with number recognition.
So, these activity play dough mats are perfect and keep her busy during St. Patrick’s Day season.
There are (20) play dough mats consisting of an empty pot of gold with a number (1-20). Your child is to make a gold pieces and fill the pot with the correct amount of pieces,
