Playdough activities are popular with toddlers and preschoolers, and they’re great for developing a number of important skills. I wanted some extra Montessori-inspired playdough mats for the seasons. So, today, I’m sharing a free spring playdough math pack ! It’s an instant download, too.
Watch tomorrow for my post with ideas of Montessori-inspired playdough math activities to go with the pack! (Note: If you live in the Southern Hemisphere, check out my post with a free fall playdough math pack!)

Free Spring Playdough Math Pack (Montessori-Inspired Instant Download)
To download, click here and then click on the file image in the upper right corner of the PDF to save to your computer (just choose where you want it saved).
For playdough activities, I really recommend printing out the pack on cardstock and laminating the pages. You can choose to leave borders or not. Here’s the new version of the laminator I use (and love).

Watch tomorrow for my “Montessori-Inspired Playdough Math Activities for Spring” (ideas using the free spring playdough math pack).
Montessori-Inspired Printables at Living Montessori Now
My daughter, Christina (a former Montessori child), and I are partnering to bring you a series of Montessori-inspired printables. The printables are typically themed and use a number of Montessori principles (although you don’t need to be a Montessori teacher or homeschooler to use them).
The playdough mats use photos for realistic dandelion and worm images. The playdough cards and counters are a fun extension to Montessori cards and counters.
You’ll find a playdough recipe that works well for spring playdough activities along with ideas for fall playdough trays in my “How to Prepare a Simple Fall Playdough Tray” post.

Montessori Monday Link-Up
Except for content, this is a no-rules linky. If you have some Montessori-inspired activity trays/lessons to share, please link up below. They can be for home or classroom. It’s fine to link up a post from your archives – and you may link up anytime during the week! Your post may be any Montessori-inspired activity or idea. It doesn’t need to be related to my Montessori Monday post.
If you’re wondering what’s considered “Montessori inspired” and what to link up (or not link up), check out my “What Is Montessori Inspired?” post. Link up your exact post URL so that we can find your activity if we return to the linky at a later date. Don’t link to giveaway posts (unless the giveaway is only part of a Montessori-inspired post). Giveaways in general should go on my giveaway linky. Also, don’t link directly to products. You can link up a review of a Montessori product or activity post related to a Montessori product.
I publish the Montessori Monday post and linky each Monday morning and keep the linky open throughout the week. I do a lot of sharing on the Living Montessori Now Facebook page from the Montessori Monday link-up. Thanks for participating!
Notes: For community discussions, please join us at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page. And don’t forget the Saturday/Sunday weekend sharing days where you may share a kid-related activity of any kind at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page!
It’s also Motivational Monday on Mondays!
