Free Printable Spring Themed Play Dough Mats
- Non-toxic, Child safe Play dough in different colors
- Printouts of our Free Printable Spring Themed Play Dough mats
1. Once you’ve printed out the play dough mats in color, get them laminated so they can withstand hours of play.
2. Spread out some newspaper or an old tablecloth.
3. Hand the laminated sheets to your little one along with the play dough. Start by pinching out small bits of play dough, rolling them into a ball, and then shaping or flattening them to fit the shapes.
The kids don’t have to stick to the recommended color themes; let their imagination run wild! The best part of this game is that you can reuse the mats – just wipe them down when done.
Toddlers will love these Spring Themed Play Dough Mats and they’ll enjoy getting all squishy with the play dough! All that pinching, rolling, and flattening is great to strengthen those little fingers and develop fine motor skills. It also helps them sit down and focus on a task at hand. This is a great time to learn about colors too or basic shapes. As always, learning is much more fun when done through play!
