Children are like sponges – they’re constantly learning new things. Sometimes we wish they weren’t quite as good at picking up everything they see and hear so easily, but we can use that to our advantage. There’s many ways we can incorporate learning into fun everyday activities with our kids; playdough shape mats are a great way to do just that.
Children won’t even realize they’re learning as they enjoy these playdough shape mats! Perfect for preschools or at-home play, this simple activity helps with dexterity too.
Playdough is one of our favorite activities because there’s so many fun things kids can do with it, like making pretend people and even learning about emotions.

As a mom with four kids, I know that the best way to teach children is to reach them at their own level. Some kids are visual learners, while others are better with hands on activities. Rather than try to get the child to fit a standard one-size-fits-all learning method, why not bring learning to them?
That’s why I think the Childtime Learning Center is a fantastic option for kids.
Childtime offers care for children from infancy to age 12 in a warm and nurturing environment that fosters a love of learning. Teachers work together with parents to figure out a method that works best for each child.
With an exclusive milestone-based curriculum for infants and toddlers, Learn from the Start™, even little ones will learn, while the “Learn as We Go” curriculum teaches routines and transitions and developing independence for preschoolers.
Older children will benefit from Junior Kindergarten (perfect for children who are done with preschool, but aren’t quite ready for kindergarten) and before and after school programs for ages 5 and up.
