How cute are these Fimo fridge magnets? I just love making things with kids, whether with a friend’s children or a young family member – we always have fun making these together. Plus, you can use whichever colours you like; you don’t have to stick to traditional!

Suitable for : Beginners

Time to make : 20 minutes each plus baking and drying time

  • Roll a ball of red Fimo and mould into an oval shape. Roll a smaller ball of black Fimo for the head, and press onto one end of the red body.
  • Add a small strip of black to the middle of the body, followed by tiny black spots either side. Place the eyes on the head.

For the Bumblebee

  • Roll a ball of yellow Fimo and mould into an oval shape.
  • Add a couple of yellow wings either side of the body, followed by thin black stripes. Place the eyes and nose on the head.

  3. Place black eyes on the butterfly?s head and finish with two green feelers.
