    Would it be possible to get an editable version of this resource? That way it can be used for other sight word sets?

      Hi Laura, Due to the way these are designed and the transparent font used, it is impossible to make these editable for use in Microsoft Word. I would suggest searching the site for 'playdough' as we do have other resources which use this technique for other word lists such as alphabet letters, days of the week and CVCC and CCVC Words. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Thank you so much for these play dough mats. There are a couple of errors though, there is a picture of a rubbish bin but the word says cat, and the picture of the boy jogging, the word says job. Other than that it is spot on!
