{FREE} Owl Counting Playdough Mats

Owls are one of our favorite fall themes! They fit a lot of other themes too, but I was delighted when we found out that this week's theme for the Virtual Book Club was going to be owls! So today I'm sharing our owl counting activity with {FREE} playdough mats!


We used these mats to make and count little playdough owls, 



work on counting up to 10, 
identifying numbers, 



and even writing numbers (with playdough)!





You can also use them as part of a sensory activity, a fine motor exercise, or as a prop to talk about colors! It was tons of fun to work on with my kiddos, but could also be used independently or as a center.

This one is a "3" with "rainbow owls hiding in the rainbow branches!"

Also be sure to check out our owl fingerpuppets and rhymes--we use them all the time, and I think you'll love them!!

We are sharing these owl counting playdough mats for the Virtual Book Club's owl week! The book this week is Owl Babies by Martin Waddell (image below is an Amazon Affiliate link):

What a great resource the mats look good. I will have to download and print to use at home with my kids.
