I suggest printing these playdough mats on cardstock for durability. You can then laminate them or slip them in a dry-erase pouch. This will allow you to reuse the playdough mats all year long.

To Use the Mats

Discuss the colors and color words with your child. Talk about the letters in each word. Have your child name other objects that are the same color.

Give your child the corresponding colors of playdough: yellow, purple, green, red, orange, blue, brown, black, grey, and pink.

Using the playdough mats as a guide, show your child how to spell the color words with playdough.

Children can use dry erase markers to color or trace letters if they prefer not to use playdough for the activity.

Use the individual color word mats as sorting cards. Have your child find three objects for each color and match them to the correct mat.

Focus on beginning sounds. Have your children name the sound each color word begins with. Can your child find another object in the room that begins with the same sound?

Can the mats be used for activities beyond playdough molding?

Absolutely! While these mats are specifically crafted for playdough activities, they can also serve as versatile learning tools. Use them for tracing ocean animal outlines, practicing color words, or as templates for crafting projects with markers or crayons. Let your child’s imagination take the lead!
