Printable Face Play Dough Mats

Free Printable mats for Play dough & for drawing inspiration for kids. Arts and crafts and creative activities

I have a play dough obsessed child. She loves all things play dough. Last year her birthday party was even, you guessed it, play dough themed.  We have tried many different play dough activities, but we have not really ever worked with play dough mats. Since my daughter loves making people, I thought that face mats would be a great idea for her.  Get your free printables at the end of the post.

We started with a lot of dough. We rolled out the colors that we wanted. It made it easier to work with.

I helped her get started with the face and showed her how to spread the play dough out.

She spread out her dough & formed little eyes & a mouth for her little girl. She used a plastic knife to cut away any excess. She wanted to give her a shirt too. She made sure that the shirt had a flower on it too. She did a great job.

Later that evening, she used wanted to draw on one too. She made a rainbow girl with rainbow hair. She was very proud.

Use laminate sheets over the printables to make them reusable. Laminate will make for easy clean up with the play dough. You could also use dry erase markers on it, to color & draw on it over and over again.

DIY Braided Hair Clip Holder


My little girl was born with very little hair. She, like her father had a receded hair line. (Sorry Honey!) There was no hair in the front, but there was quite a bit in the back. As time went on, the back of her hair continued to grow, yet the front stayed hairless. She started to take on a sort of baby mullet. I dressed her in pink as much as possible to avoid the “Isn’t he cute.” “Thank you, SHE is cute, isn’t she?”


So, when Mai was finally able to pull her hair back into pigtails, mommy was elated.


I bought hair clips & barrettes galore. Every time we left the house, I had to throw a pretty clip in her hair. The problem is I had no where to put all of these little hair pretties and they ended up all over the house and lost.

Braided Hair Clip Holder

What you will need:

A sturdy piece of cardboard

Elmers glue

Modge Podge

Carefully adhere the picture to a piece of cardboard & cut around the cardboard to match the shape of your picture.


Paint the Modge Podge over the top of your picture.


Measure out your yarn. You want it long enough to follow the length of the hair in the picture.


Working in small sections, paint on the Elmer’s glue.


Add your strands of yarn, a strand at a time following the same pattern of the hair in your picture.


Continue, working strand by strand pushing the strands tightly together.


Fill in all areas & let your glue dry.


Using the yarn, form a braid to your desired length.


Using a glue gun. hot glue the braid around the back & sides, where ever the braid touches the cardboard.


Add your picture hanging adhesive strips & hang. Add your hair clips to the yarn strands in the braid.
