How to Play this Printable Snowman Play Dough Mat Game:
The rules of the game are easy! Take turns rolling one dice. Match the number on your dice to the item you need to roll with your play dough and design for your snowman! Whoever finishes designing their snowman first wins!
OR you can even play this as a cooperative sensory game! Take turns rolling the dice and work together to decorate the snowman based on what numbers you roll with your dice!
I do recommend laminating this “Roll a Snowman” play dough game mat so that it doesn’t stick to your play dough and you can use it over and over again! If you don’t have a laminator you can use a small piece of wax paper to put your play dough on!
Play Dough Colors Needed:
Of course you’ll need black, red, white, orange and brown play dough if you want to have the right colors for your snowman! But don’t worry – you can build a snowman with any color play dough that you have on hand! OR you can even make your own homemade play dough here!
