A while ago, I sent out some Fimo modelling clay to some bloggers and asked them to try out some kits and supplies and see what they made of this fabulous modelling clay. They pretty much all loved it and I think some new crafty obsessions were spawned. Fimo is so fantastically diverse, easy for kids to use and easy for adults to take on a step further. The internet is littered with the incredible creations made by different people; it’s inspiring and daunting to see what can be done with such a simple clay. I’ve been enjoying collecting ideas together on Pinterest, an online mood board where I can be found as MerrilyMe.
Below are links to the reviews that our bloggers did – I sincerely hope I did ask everyone for permission to use the photos and am sorry that it took so long to do my thank you post. You are all FABULOUS!
First up is 2 Stars & a Swirl who made robots and sheep. I was seriously impressed at what so small a person could achieve. The fold over create your own kits are great for learning but this is a real testament to how easy the instructions are to follow.
Over at Rollercoaster Mum it was Unicorns – and in what becomes a bit of a theme – mum took over to get them JUST RIGHT Along with many other plus points, this mum really liked it being a good, quick craft that was nearly mess free – and I agree
Dinosaurs were the order of the day at Seasider in the City where a small person did a very creditable job of making a formidably frightening fella.
While similarly scary sea monster appeared over at Egg Dip Dip where, to her credit, mum managed to hand over the goods to the kids
The basic starter kit was a big hit at Red Rose Mummy‘s house and I think I spy some Angry Bird inspiration in amongst all that. This review really shows how quickly kids will seek out their own ideas with polymer clay and start to create all on their own.
I absolutely love that The Cheetah Keeper has done video reviews of their Fimo exploits. Dinosaur aliens – now there is a combination!
T-Rexs and Tiaras tried out a bead roller and was very pleased to be able to make lots of uniform beads with it while over at the anamumdiary they had a go at millifiori and although they found it a bit of a challenge, they managed to make a great beaded decoration with it.
I think I was most impressed of all with the models made by Maxi and Mini at Mum in the Madhouse. The elephant and lion really caught my eye but I also loved the lion. I think they are fabulous!
Fimo really comes into its own for kids at Christmas I think. Alyson, with added pasta machine and cookie cutters, had fun making Xmas decorations with her kids and at school. It’s just such an easy way to keep kids entertained with something they can take home and show off afterwards.
There were bears and Cbeebies characters made over at The Gingerbread House. They said they didn’t dare show us any pictures – but I bet they were fab
