Fimo Clay

I think Fimo Clay might be our very favourite craft supply — I always have a large stockpile in our craft cupboard and my boys seem to go through it so quickly.  My boys love that they can form shapes and creatures with the clay and then ‘cook’ them so they set permanently. (You should see our collection of elaborate clay creatures!)  They also like mixing up the colors to make beads for bracelets and necklaces.  What I love is that my kids can do it without my help (the making, not the cooking) and it provides hours of quiet, creative time. Oh, and I also love all the Fimo-beaded jewelery I’ve received!

You can buy Fimo clay from Amazon, or from your local art supply store.

I like to “play” with it too…
my daughter likes all this playdough, fimo stuff and makes more and more “real” things like trees or elephants…

You should try a product called sculpty too it has all the same elements but you can make it into rubbers! Great for a good rainy day activity. x
