These Spring Play Dough Mats are perfect for the upcoming weather! Is anyone else ready for winter to just be done?
I’m so ready for spring, yet it is snowing outside right now, not cool. It seems as this winter weather has literally gone on for forever…and I’m ready for Spring to be here now. Luckily, in just a few short weeks, Spring will be a reality! In order to prepare for that glorious nature change, we’re celebrating with these Printable Spring Play Dough Mats.
They’re fun, educational and they allow your child can bring Spring inside. And while Spring means the bugs are back and the animals come out, this also means we don’t need out coats, mittens, and hats. Let’s celebrate! (I’m ready to put them all away now.)
And now we have tons more fun printable kindergarten worksheets to share.

Play Dough Mat Supplies
All you need are the following supplies to get started! (and many of these supplies are used throughout my other craft posts and activities, too!)
Print out the play dough mats and either laminate them or place them inside page protectors and they can be used with play dough right away. My daughter loves covering up the pictures with different colored play dough. My son rolls out the play dough to place them on top of the letters. It’s a great activity for preschoolers to learn their letters and it gives them a multi-sensory approach to letters. Especially if they’re not writing that well yet.
