Zoo Animals with Fimo
We bought some Fimo and the girls made some zoo animals with it based on our trip to London Zoo. They made a Lion, a monkey and an elephant (not seen at London zoo but it is a zoo animal).
Fimo is quite hard to work with as each lump you get is quite small - so each model ends up being small. Great for fine motor skills but you can also reuse it until you actually get round to cooking it in the oven. It is great because although G enjoys playing with P and her playdough she saw the Fimo as more 'grown-up'.
