What is a playdough mat?

The mats often come printed with designs or shapes that kids can use as a guide to make their playdough creations.

I have the HP printer 8710 but it’s not available anymore. It’s been running well for years now. Look for another HP Instant Ink-ready printer so that you can use their program to send you ink cartridges whenever your printer gets low on ink.

Pig Activities with Printable Play Dough Mats

We read Pigs by Roberth Munsch, we love his books and they’re always so crazy and exciting so my kids always look forward to his books. Beware it does use the word dumb, but it didn’t take away from the book and it was a fun and crazy read.

The pigs escape and cause chaos and you realize that the pigs are not dumb at all but pretty smart. I created these printable play dough mats for my daughter to use, you can see how she filled it up below my picture.

My son didn’t care for the play dough mat so he sculpted his pig out of play dough. He looked at pictures of pigs to get it just right.

Actually, his curly tail fell off and he was not happy about it and he didn’t want to make it again because it was the hardest part about the pig. Oh well.
