Can you believe that Easter is so close?
I’m not ready!
I’m not ready for our summer to end, I am not ready for the end of our first term at school, and I am certainly not ready to think about Easter!
Well, except for the hot cross buns, I’ve been thinking about those, and consuming them, since January!
But if I must contemplate the coming of Easter, then the least I can do is make some Easter play dough mats!
My play dough mat co-collaborator (aka Noah, my youngest child) was at school when I designed this new set of play dough mats, so he got a great surprise when he got home and found them all set up on the table waiting for him.
Do you have an Easter hat parade where you live? Our school does one every year for the juniors and it’s lots of fun, so the first play dough mat in this series is an Easter hat to decorate.
You can download the ‘Decorate an Easter hat’ play dough mat here.
Of course it’s not Easter without eggs, and it’s lots of fun to decorate your own Easter eggs, even play dough ones!
You can download the ‘Decorate the Easter egg’ play dough mat here.
Does the Easter bunny visit your house? What does he look like? Does he have long ears like these?
You can download the ‘Who belongs to these ears?’ play dough mat here.
Easter doesn’t happen during spring time for us in Australia, so perhaps it won’t be a chick that is hatching out of this egg?
You can download the ‘Who is hatching out of this egg?’ play dough mat here.
These printables are A4 sized pdf files, you will need a pdf reader such as adobe acrobat to open them. If you are printing on US ‘letter sized’ paper be sure to select ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options.
Please remember that the printables at picklebums.com are for personal use only, you may not sell, share, or link directly to these files.
It was so nice to spend some time creating with Noah and playing play dough.
Of course my big kids are ‘too old’ for play dough, but they’ll have a bit of a play,anyway!
