Everyone loves playdough. That’s why these LDS playdough mats are so much fun. They combine the fun of creating with the love of classic Primary songs. They are perfect for car rides, General Conference, quiet time during Sacrament or just at home. Check it out!
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I grew up singing songs about Jesus in my primary class. I want my kids to learn them as well. That’s why I thought it would be fun to create to playdough mats that combined the fun of playdough and the joy of music. Even if you’re not a member of my faith, these mats are perfect for anyone, young or old.
Gather your LDS playdough mats supplies
You don’t need much to get started on these playdough mats. All you need is some playdough and the mats! I like to use the Play-doh brand but feel free to use whatever you like.
If you don’t want to buy your playdough, you can also make your own. Here’s an awesome recipe that calls for ingredients that you probably already have at home. Once you’re done, store your homemade playdough in these clear plastic containers or a ziploc bag.
Download your printable playdough mats
I designed these mats with four mats per page, so you can maximize your play time. There are three total pages, so that’s 12 mats total. Once you download your PDF, just print it at home or you can email the file to your local printer. For best results, print your mats on cardstock and laminate each page before you cut them out. I ended up paying just a few dollars to have them laminated and printed at the local copy store. Just click on the link below to download your PDF.
Cut out and start creating
Once you’ve printed and laminated your LDS playdough mats, you just need to cut them out on the dotted lines provided. You should end up with 12 adorable mats.
I tried to make these mats simple enough for all ages. Your kids can add apricots to the tree, rays to the sunshine or petals to the flower. Plus, you can use these mats in a variety of situations, such as:
- Primary class
- Quiet time during church
- Listening to General Conference
I hope you like these playdough mats as much my kids and I did. Here’s the link to the printable PDF one more time if you didn’t see it before:
