Snowman Playdough Mats {Free Printables}

We can’t seem to get enough of playdough lately, and with Christmas coming, we thought it was the perfect excuse to put together a fun set of snowman playdough mats to keep the fun going. To discover our recommendations for printing and laminating (and how we like to save money in the process), please continue reading below.

Save Money on Printing

If you’d like to save money on printing, I encourage you to check out HP Instant Ink. I’ve been using them for years and have saved SO MUCH money! It’s easy too – they know when your ink levels are running low and automatically send you new cartridges!

In fact, they gave me an exclusive unique link to share with you! You can try them out by clicking here and you’ll get three months free! Check out HP Instant Ink here.

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 snowman playdough mats, it’s time to have some fun!

We set our snowman playdough mats out and asked the children to place the appropriate number of playdough balls on the grid. You can also invite them to outline the numbers or letters with playdough or to decorate the snowman.

What I love about these snowman playdough mats is that only do they encourage number recognition and counting practice but they also encourage creativity and open-ended thinking. You could also practice addition and subtraction with the playdough mats.

You could also use these sheets with dry erase markers, pom poms, or counters. 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!
