Printables How To

If you want your play dough mats to be large (8.5×11), then print one on each page.

Or if you prefer them smaller (like us), then set up your printer settings to print 2 per page (in layout).

You will need:

Homemade Playdough recipe      Homemade Salt Dough Recipe

Free printables

Steps:

  1. Print the playdough mats on a single sheet each for large images or print 2 mats per page for smaller images (we prefer these better).
  2. Laminate the sheets.
  3. Cut them in half (if printer 2 per page)
  4. Use the mats as templates for shapes.
  5. Let the shapes dry a bit and bake (20 minutes at 250 degrees -not preheated) or take decorations off, knead a bit and start all over again for more fun!

Ideas

We used the wreath mat to make holiday wreath ornaments. We used fresh cranberries, glitter and colorful sprinkles to decorate them and make them look festive and fun.

As the children played with other mats, I took the wreaths off the template mats and placed them gently on a cookie sheet to bake (15 minutes at 300 degrees -preheated) and let them cool completely.

Then I added the colorful pipe cleaner to hang the ornament and used foam labels to make a Joyeux Noël sign (Merry Christmas in French because we made these during French class).

We played with the candy canes, the string of Christmas lights and the snowman. There are even more mats to play with another time or two!

Essential oils

Here are our finished wreaths. You can either use food coloring for the homemade salt dough or you can paint after baking. We like to use water-based paint and they work great. We also like an added (and optional) touch: we add essential oils to our works of art.

On these, we used 2 drops of Christmas Spirit on one and 2 drops of Peppermint on the other one. When we make more, I will use White Fir and Idaho Blue Spruce. I just LOVE the smell of evergreens in my home!
