Open Ended Art ~ Mosaics with Play Dough

Emily's Play Dough Mosaic

This month's Open Ended Art theme is Mosaics. This weeks material is play dough. I was really at a loss for something interesting for this one so I decided to just roll out some play dough, have Emily cut it into squares or squarish pieces and place it on some paper. When I gave Emily the black construction paper she asked for glue. At firsy I was like we don't glue play dough, but then I thought about it and decided we would give it a try. After all we glued every other mosaic. Emily was thrilled! We both ended up really enjoying this one :0)

That came out great. GREAT idea to use the pizza cutter. My kids would like to do it that way too.

The pizza cutter is a really good idea! I will have to do that with my son.

Awesome! It looks so great! I would've had the same reaction when she wanted to glue it - good for you for letting her do it anyway!

This is a great idea. I wish I was more relaxed about mixing playdoh colors and using playdoh with glue. I am always impressed how Emily manages to stick with such big projects. Usually Anna is done after the first five squares. Do you ever finish her projects?
