Mood indicator ▪ FIMO kids DIY | STAEDTLER

Step-by-step tutorial

Roll two portions of FIMO kids “violet” into a ball and press it flat with the palm of your hand to form a face. Then place the round shape on a piece of baking paper.

Now for the facial expression! Cut two small pieces from the white block and shape them into two ovals. These are the eyeballs! Gently press on the top third of the face. Next comes pupils, eyebrows and mouth, which are made using small pieces of FIMO kids “black”. A nose is a must! Roll a small piece of FIMO kids “red” into a nose and also press it gently into the middle of the face.

1 FIMO Block = 1 portion

Tip: Clean the work surface and your hands with a damp cloth before proceeding with a new FIMO colour in the next step.

Repeat steps one to four with the remaining FIMO kids colours “blue”, “green” and“red” and shape them into sad, angry, serious, surprised, funny .... facial expressions!

All four mood faces are then hardened in the oven for  30 minutes at 110°C. Get help from an adult.

Continue with the base while the faces harden in the oven. To do this, divide a piece of paper with a ruler and pencil into four lines of the same height. Then divide it lengthwise into two columns with a line, of which the right one may be slightly narrower. The left sides can now be coloured in and decorated to make different moods!

After cooling down, the faces are glued into the four left fields with hot glue. Ask an adult to help you glue them. Finally, attach the clothes peg to one of the right-hand fields to show your current mood and hang the board on your bedroom door. Done! What’s your mood today?
