What to Do

Begin by downloading and printing the adventures outside playdough mats. We recently signed up for the HP Instant Ink program and are loving it! They offer several different plans (such as $4.99 for 100 pages a month) and will automatically send you new cartridges before you even need them. We are now saving SO MUCH money (and time) on ink and I don’t feel guilty printing out new printables and playdough mats each day. If you want to check it out, ordering through our link here will give you 3 free months. You can use just about any HP printer but we’ve been using this compact one and absolutely love it! The color is gorgeous and matches my decor (we’ll call that a win!) and the size is smaller than any printer I’ve ever owned which is great for small spaces (or living room/dining room offices). Between HP Instant Ink and our compact printer, my printing life truly has become so much easier to print all these fun playdough mats and activity sheets we’ve been making lately.

Sometimes we laminate our playdough mats and sometimes we slip them into sheet protectors and tuck them in a 3-ring binder. Laminating is a bit more durable but if your little ones aren’t too rambunctious with their playdough mats, sheet protectors should work just fine.

Once you’ve printed, laminated, and cut out your playdough mats, it’s time to have some fun!

Adventures Outside Playdough Mat Playtime

To play, simply place a playdough mat out for your child, along with some playdough and beads, buttons, or pom poms, and invite your child to follow the prompts given on the mat.

I’ll admit, I had just as much fun as the kids did with these playdough mats.
