“Don’t you think we need some new playdough mats?”
It seems Noah can only go a month or two before he starts nagging me for a new set of playdough mats. Nothing like having a four year old to make sure you don’t slack off on your blogging duties!
We discussed some ideas and options and we finally settled on an idea and here is our newest set of free printable playdough mats – beautiful bugs
Once we decided on a theme I came up with a few buggy ideas and got to work. Soon we were printing out and laminating. Then all we needed was some play dough and a few fun accessories.
First up is a very dangerous, poison spiky snail, only found in Tasmania.
We’ll have to watch out for them when we go to Tassie in a few weeks!
Then came a ferocious three-eyed caterpillar!
I didn’t know the bugs at our house were so scary.
Now if you are scared of spiders, you should probably click away now…
Although this spider is a bit of a cutey if you ask me!
Last in our set of beautiful bugs is the butterfly…
To make your own beautiful (or scary) bugs, just print out the playdough mats and laminate them or cover them in self adhesive paper.
Each of these printable beautiful bugs playdough mats is an A4 sized pdf file. If you are printing on US letter sized paper make sure you choose ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer settings.
They also work great with dry erase markers or crayons, or print them in black and white on plain paper and use them as drawing prompts.
