I really felt like I was nailing this motherhood thing when I started making my own playdough. When I bought a laminator, I cemented my position. Then I combined the two for printable playdough mats that I found on Pinterest, and I felt like I could retire, top of my game.
Well, you can’t retire from motherhood, especially when your kids are only two and three. Someone’s gotta be there to cut the crusts off and nobody can navigate the toilet without your help, it would appear. So when you need five minutes’ peace, print off some mats, laminate them (if you want), and let those kiddies go nuts. Sometimes, there’s even learning involved. Someone should give you a medal 😉
And if you don’t want to make your own playdough (I use this recipe), then I’m all about you buying it. I’m all about you doing whatever the hell you want!
So some of the free playdough printables we like are:

Dora Tot Book // 1+1+1=1 (with matching games, colouring sheets, all sorts of fun stuff)
People Playdough Mats // Picklebums
Rainbow Pompom Template (I know it’s for pompoms, but would be cute for playdough too).
Carrots for the Rabbit // PreKinders
