What to Do

Begin by download and printing the Christmas playdough mat bundle. 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 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 and protected your Christmas playdough mats, it’s time to have some fun!

We set our playdough mats out, along with some playdough, pom poms, mini erasers, and beads, and let the children decorate as they wished.

What I love about these Christmas playdough mats is that they encourage creativity and open-ended thinking. Such a great quiet time activity.

You could also use these sheets with dry erase markers, markers, or crayons. We’ve used all of these in the past and the kids have had a blast with them all.

Miss 7, Miss 4, and Miss 18 months all had fun with this activity. Such a great activity for a wide range of ages!
