Toddler Art Class: Playing with Clay
Simple materials can be the most compelling.
Art Project: Playing with [air dry] clay
clay (we used Crayola Air Dry variety)
plastic baggies in case anyone wants to take their clay home

You could try this same activity with playdough, but I did have several people comment that their kid never plays this long with playdough, but they seem to love this stuff. It does have a firmer and slightly stickier texture. You could also try Sculpey or modeling clay.
