How we have used these Digraph Playdough Mats
One of the most basic ways to use these mats is to put them in a sheet protectors and pull out digraph you are working on and do the playdough letters. This last them work on fine motor skills while making the playdough letters. I know that my girls have always loved having the playdough mats.
Another way to do this is to make it a coloring page and do color the digraph letters with their favorite color. I love that coloring is always an option with playdough mats.
