This snowman play dough mat printable is great for Christmas and winter sensory play.
Snowman play dough math printable
Print the snowman play dough mat (see how below) and set it out with play dough – perhaps in the colours black, brown, orange and red.
Invite your children to decorate the snowman.
They can roll balls to make eyes and a mouth.
Make ‘sausages’ to create a scarf.
Don’t forget a hat to keep him warm!
All the rolling and shaping of the play dough is a fantastic workout for fine motor skills.
Basic play dough recipe
Homemade playdough is very easy to make. Try this no-cook recipe:
In a large bowl, add:
:: 2 cups flour
:: 1 cup salt
:: 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
:: and 2 tablespoons cream of tartar.
Boil the kettle and pour 1 1/2 cups of the water into your mixture, along with any food colouring.
Mix and knead to form a dough, and then you are ready to play.
If you’d like a very white dough, you can try this snow play dough recipe.
Snowman coloring page printable
The mat also makes a perfect snowman coloring page. Set out the printable with pens or pencils and invite your children to draw in the details.
