All preschool kids seem to love Mat Man. Mat Man helps children learn how to draw representational drawings and also how to learn to draw details . As children learn to spell and write sentences in kindergarten, knowing how to draw will help them to write more detailed sentences, as they can often refer to their drawings and then describe what they have drawn.
We used STIFF FELT and regular felt to create our mat and all shapes. I ordered my stiff felt in a big pack from walmart (because shopping in person wasn't available during Covid-19 stay at home) but it might be available at other hobby stores now. The stiff felt is also great for building in general because its so kinesthetic. It sticks to itself and the other felt pieces and can even be used as a felt board activity.
