FREE Alphabet Playdough Mats

I whipped up these {free}Alphabet Playdough Mats to help my toddler, preschooler, and Kindergartner practice making their making their letters.
 FREE Alphabet Playdough Mats -these free printables are great to help toddler, preschool, prek, and kindergarten age kids learn to make their letters in a fun, hands on way. These are great for summer learning, preschools, centers, and homeschooling

Why Playdoh Mats?

Playing with playdoh helps strengthen little hands to prepare them for writing.  Playdoh is also a lot of fun and allows children to be creative and use their senses. We like to make scented play doh or DIY Chocolate Play doh to make it a multi sensory activity.

Preschool Worksheets - Alphabet Playdoh Mats

I created the Playdough Mats to help teach my toddler and preschooler how to make both upper and lower case letters. Just laminate the sheets or stick them in page protectors so they can be used over and over. This is a simple, fun activity that is perfect for early learners. [see more preschool worksheets]
