Beginning Letter Playdough Mats

Alphabet Begin With The Letter E Playdough Mat

Alphabet Begin With The Letter E Playdough Mat

This set of playdough mats goes all the way through the alphabet asking children to think of things beginning with each letter to model with their playdough. I think if it was me, I would model an egg. I wasn't very good with my playdough!

Alphabet Begin With The Letter L Playdough Mat

Alphabet Begin With The Letter L Playdough Mat

Modelling leaves out of playdough is lots of fun - especially if you press real leaves against the playdough to impress the markings! But there are lots of other things beginning with the letter L that they could model too. Perhaps a lemon? Or a lion?

Alphabet Begin With The Letter O Playdough Mat

Alphabet Begin With The Letter O Playdough Mat

An octopus is just one thing beginning with the letter O that the kids could model out of playdough (and a fun thing to do, too, I think!) Can they think of more? Do you have any orange playdough to hand, perhaps?

Alphabet Begin With The Letter S Playdough Mat

Alphabet Begin With The Letter S Playdough Mat

What begins with the letter S? A ship is just one example. What other words can the kids come up with, and model with their playdough? You might want to laminate this mat if you think you might use it again.

Alphabet Begin With The Letter X Playdough Mat

Alphabet Begin With The Letter X Playdough Mat

I'm not sure how you model an X-Ray out of playdough - but perhaps the kids can come up with a way? You might relax the rules with this playdough mat and ask them to model words ending with the letter x, too.
