Today’s Open Ended Art theme was Playdough/clay and mosaics. This activity was SO much fun because Deen had his cousins over to play. Its a nice change to be doing open ended art with older children. Their concentration is so much better and they really enjoy themselves.
My only regret is that we didn’t use clay… these would be so pretty and I have no idea how the homemade playdough is going to look once dry.. I don’t think it can be used as a substitute to polymer clay 🙁 🙁 🙁
It would have been nice then for the kids to have something to take home to show their parents and display in their homes…
We cut out shapes of playdough using playdough/cookie cutters.
Then I placed some colored pasta and colored rice (it can be made the same way as colored salt) on the middle of the table
