As the nights get longer, we start to see more and more forest animals peeking out of the trees in our neighborhood. So, I thought it was a great time of year to introduce a set of Forest Playdough Alphabet Mats!
These would go great with a forest unit study or a unit study on animal homes, especially if your family includes toddlers and preschoolers who are learning the alphabet!
These are wonderful for building fine motor skills and early literacy with young kids! Plus, they’re an excellent choice for quiet time play.

Preschool Playdough Mats: Forest Playdough Alphabet Mats
To use these forest playdough alphabet mats, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Color printer with ink
- Printer paper
- Laminator (This one has been a staple in our homeschool for years.)
- Assorted playdough
In this set, you’ll find forest-themed mats for each letter of the alphabet from A to Z.
Both the uppercase and lowercase letters are shown, so you can introduce them both if you like.
To make sure these mats last, it’s a good idea to laminate them before use.
That way, once the kids are done, you can just wipe them clean and store them for another time.
