My son has loved playing with play dough for years now, and we have made many different types of dough. But recently I’ve wanted to move things  along a little bit and focus his creations. Whilst researching some play dough mats for him I found so many amazing FREE printables that I wanted to share them with you!

Once you have printed out your play dough mat, there are three ways to cover it:

  • Contact Paper – cut out two pieces of contact paper slightly larger than the mat. Put one piece on the front and another on the back, sticky sides together so the edges are sealed.
  • Plastic Page Protectors – by far the quickest option! Just slip the mat into one of these plastic sleeves and you’re ready to go.
  • Laminator – the most professional finish. Just place the mat inside a laminating pouch and run it through the laminator.
