Fimo Craft Ideas for Younger Children

 

‘Sh*t!  Are you supposed to bake Fimo????’ ‘Er, yes petal!’

How the h*ll was I supposed to know, I’ve never used the stuff before and crafting is not my strong point.  I was sent a box of it to play with from Cost Cutters Education Supplies.  So, as a good mother and my daughter is studying minibeasts at school, I set her and my husband to making one of these.

Fimo Dragon Fly - Kids Crafts

I thought it was rather impressive.

But,  over the coming weeks a large grease spot has developed around the Dragonfly.  This is when it donned on me that you are supposed to bake it.  Well it’s modelling clay I really should have thought of it.

Anyhow, now that I’ve worked out what it’s for, I’ve spent the evening searching the net for ideas of what to do with the plethora I have left over.

Do you have any other suggestions of what we can do with it?  Bearing in mind my daughter is only 5.
