Have a FIMO teddy bear picnic

As the weather is a bit gloomy outside, why not have your own teddy bear picnic indoors? Here is a step by step guide to make your own FIMO teddy bear.

What you will need:

FIMO kids modelling clay, we use brown, white and pink

STAEDTLER permanent marker pen

Cutting tool

Baking tray or ceramic tile

Step 1

Roll 4 portions of brown FIMO into a ball for a body, and 2 portions into a smaller ball for the head.

Step 1

Step 2

Roll remaining 2 portions into a sausage and cut into 5 pieces. Make 2 into short fat legs and 2 into arms by rolling thinner at one end.

Step 2

Step 3

Cut the 1/5 piece of brown FIMO in half, roll 1 piece into a ball, add a smaller ball of pink FIMO on top and flatten. Cut in half to make 2 ears.

Step 3

Step 4

Press all the pieces into place – there’s no need for glue as FIMO sticks to itself!

Step 4

Step 5

Use the last piece of brown FIMO to make a muzzle by rolling into a ball and flattening on the bears face pressing into position.

Step 5

Step 6

Press small balls of pink FIMO onto your bear as a nose and paws. Roll a ball of flesh FIMO (or blend some brown into white to make beige) and flatten onto your bear’s tummy.

Step 7

Bake for 30 minutes at 110 o C 230 o F allow to cool at room temperature. Use a permanent marker to draw eyes and a smiley mouth.

Step 6

Try experimenting with different colour bears and invite them all to the picnic!
