Target preschool vocabulary in your classroom or speech therapy sessions with these adorable gumball smash mats!

3/31/2020: This resource was just updated! I've added 8 new smash mats and updated some of the other clip art. Please re-download if you already own it! :)

Includes 22 total smash mats with 8 pictures per mat. Smash mats included are as follows:

-Farm Animals

-Zoo Animals

-Sea Life


-Things You Wear (2)



-Food & Drink

-Around the House

-Things that Go

-At the Playground

-Actions (2)

-At the Beach


-Things at School (2)






Laminate each smash mat. Identify or name a picture and then cover the picture with a Play-Doh gumball! Continue until all pictures have been covered. I also sometimes have my kids cover the pictures with pom poms or mini erasers to change it up a bit!

Take a look at some of the great feedback for this resource:
