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!

  1. Ages: 0 - 8

  2. 1 hour - 2 hours

  3. A little messy

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 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". :)

  • Step 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!

  • Step 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!

  • Step 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. :)
