Alphabet Playdough Mats (FREE Printable Mats)

FREE Alphabet Playdough Mats - This Reading Mama

Playdough is a favorite at our house. There’s hardly a day that goes by that I don’t hear, “Mommy, can we play with the playdough?” I also have little ones who love their alphabet (and two who still need to work on it a bit). So, I combined letter learning and playdough and created some Alphabet Playdough Mats (free download at the end of this post). A few of them may look familiar, as I used a couple of mat ideas from my Winter, Spring, and Summer Playdough Mats.

The idea is that you take the open-ended mat, slip it into a plastic sleeve protector {or laminate for durability} add a little playdough, while sneaking in some fine motor fun, and create a picture with it like you see in the example above. The mats are all open-ended so kids can get as creative as they’d like. You can use store-bought dough {like we used} or make your own.


This pack is perfect for kids who need some alphabet review or you  can take it one at a time, printing off just the letter(s) you want. {And just for the record, ALL my kids love these mats; they are ages 2, 4, 5.5 and almost 9.} If you are a classroom teacher, this would make a GREAT fine motor/literacy center, too!
