Today we played with FIMO soft polymer clay and made little slices and beads. Aside from playing with them in little bowls, as the girls did, they could be used as game pieces (i.e. making them larger and flatter for checkers, or pieces for Sorry or Monopoly or a game that you invent). They could be used to practice pattern-making, mixed in with petals for popourri, in mini-vases or tiny glass jars on your desk or workspace, or as beads in jewelry.
This slideshow was created with PictoBrowser which is a fantastic tool! My attempts to put the photos in order did not work, but if you look at the slide number you can see the order. You'll find detailed instructions at Kids Polymer Clay Project (Part 1).
