I’ve done a few roundups in the past of some fun printables for moms and kids. This month I wanted to feature play dough mat printables.
Lately I have been trying to collect and print a bunch of these and add them to my filing cabinet. I love that these can also work as a busy bag using dry erase markers (as long as your kid is old enough to use them wisely ). Don’t forget you can also use your pom-pom printables as play dough mats.
Typically with kid’s printables I will laminate them right after printing them so that they are ready to go. However, since I want to have a vast collection of play dough mat printables, I will use my dry erase sleeves instead to save on laminating costs.
If you don’t know what dry erase sleeves are, basically you can insert different printables into them and use markers or play dough on top. They work just like lamination, except you can switch out the paper. Here is a picture of my nephew using the dry erase sleeves I gave him:
I will add a picture of how I organize all of my play dough mat printables once I am finished with my products (I plan on sorting and storing them in the following categories: Holiday, Numbers, Letters, Imaginative, and other. I will also have a few of my favorites combined into booklets.
Here are some of my favorite places to find free play dough mats:

A HUGE thank you to those of you that shop through our occasional affiliate links that appear on Mother's Niche! It is of no extra cost to you, and I notice and appreciate it each time that it happens (really). Because of you, I might be able to avoid having to cloth diaper my babies, wash and recycle my zip lock baggies, and maybe one day in the future we will be able to afford a lawn mower. A girl can dream, right? See my disclosure policy for more info. Love you all!
