Cheeseburger Letter Build Playdough Mats

Preschool kids will love these alphabet playdough learning mats! This kit includes a ‘cheeseburger’ mat for kids to build their letters on and alphabet play dough ‘pickles’ letter cards. Kids will choose a pickle card and then identify the letter on the card. They will place it on the play dough mat and build the letter using play dough.

FREE printable Playdough mats featuring a cheeseburger and alphabet pickles. Fun theme that preschoolers and kindergarten kids will love! Perfect for year-round letter practice and fine motor fun.

To prepare:

Print the ‘cheeseburger’ mat and 'pickle' letter cards. There are two options for this mat (one with eyes and one without). Laminate the mat along with the 'pickle' cards. There is also a black and white option for the letter cards to save colour ink. You could use coloured paper to print them on too – although this will make it slightly harder to see when the kids start building their letters.

Alphabet Formation Cheeseburger Play Dough Mats

These mats are so much fun for preschoolers and kindergarten kids alike. Kids need a lot of practice in reading, tracing and building their letters once they begin learning them. It is important that we provide them ample opportunities to study each letter formation and shape.

Once everything is laminated, place them on the learning table along with play dough tubs and maybe some rolling pins. A student will choose a letter ‘pickle’ card and then identify the letter on the card (e.g: ‘e’), they will say a word that begins with the letter ‘e’ like egg. They will then place the pickle card onto the cheeseburger mat and start building the letter.

You could also choose the letters you are working on and focus on a particular set rather than the whole set at once. The kids will love doing this! If you would like this activity larger, print the cards along with the ‘Cheeseburger mat’ on A3 poster paper.
