Playdough Abstract Sculpture

Playdough Abstract Sculpture

My daughter really enjoys playing with playdough so I decided to set out some interesting objects for her to make an abstract sculpture with!

Ages:
2 - 5
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. play dough
  2. pipe cleaners
  3. straws
  4. sticks
  1. My daughter chose pink playdough and started with the straws for her abstract sculpture first. She bent the straws and told me she "wouldn't drink the playdough". :)

  2. Next, she wanted to add the pipe cleaners. It gave the sculpture some added interest and she chose to leave some bent and others not!

  3. Next, she chose to add in some wooden sticks. I used coffee stirrers but honestly, you could use sticks from outside or any other material that you think your kiddo would enjoy playing with!

  4. I love how this art project led to a little role playing too. Here my daughter is pretending to have "playdough tea" as she called it. :)

  5. Have fun and let your imagination go with your own playdough abstract sculpture!
