Fimble and dough

Introduction

This make allows your child to get creative and experiment with different shapes and textures as they produce their very own play dough Fimble. The task also helps to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they make up the dough, roll it out and carefully cut it into segments. It's quite a complicated task for small hands, so you'll need to give then plenty of encouragement and help out when they get stuck.

How to extend the magic

If you have any left-over play dough create some flowers or little creatures to sit alongside your Fimble. Have a go at making a snail - just roll a piece of play dough into a spiral to create the shell and then fix a small piece of dough underneath for its body. Simple flowers like daisies are easy to make too - just roll a small ball of play dough for the centre, and some oval shapes for each petal.
