We rolled the FIMO into balls and pressed the sides flat. We used baking paper over the board so not to stain or get FIMO on the board but also so the sides would be really smooth. Caspar made a hole through each bead and with help used our rubber stamps to personalise the beads. For the most part we stamped in the names of people we made necklaces for. We also made a happy necklace, when I saw all of these colours 'happy' was the first word that came to mind.
We keep modelling beeswax and FIMO on Caspar's shelves so even though today we made a specific item he can use these materials when he likes in an open ended way. He doesn't always choose to bake what he makes with FIMO but when he does he is fully supervised.
