Planning a kids Christmas party or class Christmas party? Or need a fun Christmas themed station for your homeschool or preschool lesson? Or maybe just a quiet activity for your toddler or playdate? We’ve got printable Christmas themed playdough mats that are easy to use and fun for all ages! Simply download the printable playdough mats, print on cardstock paper, and laminate to use again and again.
Play dough mats are a great way to help develop a child’s imagination while practicing fine motor skills. Sometimes just handing a kid some play dough and tools isn’t enough; they need a little guidance. Play dough mats are the perfect way to have minimal guided play.

Make it even more fun by giving the kids or students extra items to add to their playdough. Items like jewels, glitter (don’t buy glitter playdough let the kids make their own by adding it to your playdough), googly eyes, buttons, etc. This hands on activity is a great sensory activity and can be used with other mixed media.
You can even use playdough mats for more than just playdough! Let kids draw on the mats with washable markers. They can erase the mats like you would a dry erase board. You can also use puffy paint (check out our easy puffy paint recipe here). Make your own with Elmer’s glue, acryic paint, and shaving cream. When the kids are done with their artwork, just wash your playdough mat and let dry.
There are 18 printable play dough mats to add to your art station this Christmas holiday season. Whether you’re a mom, preschool or kindergarten teacher, special education teacher, babysitter, nanny, or even a grandparent, these mats will make for such a fun activity with kids. We’ve designed these festive mats to get the kids ready for the Christmas season.
Don’t forget to laminate these Christmas Play Dough Mats or put them into sheet protectors before playing with. That way you can use them over and over again every Christmas holiday season. We put these in our Christmas bin so we can use them each time Christmas rolls around. They’re seriously such a great toddler activity and preschool or elementary aged art activity.
Follow along on our Youtube channel for tutorials on how to create art using Play-Doh as well as many other fun activities for kids. We’ll be doing a series of Play Doh creations that your little ones can follow along with. All you need to do is print off the corresponding play dough mat, get them some play dough and turn on the video! Then you can go get a few chores done while they’re busy creating!
