Hama Bead (Perler/ Melty) Crafts

Me and the kids love Hama beads (known as melty or Perler fuse beads) which are a very therapeutic and calming craft to do as a family.As well as making up kits there is the free style element of it.It helps with eye to hand co-ordination, colour recognition, using your imagination and most of all they are fun.

My invite to attend the G+ hangout went astray unfortunately but I’m sharing what we’ve made.

Mine and the kids first kit was a circus puppet theatre which consisted of a clown, a sailor boy, princess and a lion.The second kit which I bought from a second hand shop for ¬£3 was a butterfly girls kits.They were too big and complicated for the kids so I did them.Then I decided after seeing a T.A.R.D.I.S Hama bead project on Pinterest I’d give it a go.I made two, fluffing up the second but they make great coasters.The last but not least is Cat, my 7 year old’s pixie house and mushroom.So cute, they can be made into a brooch.

I’ve certainly been inspired by the hang out and I’ll trying out some new ideas with the kids the time we’re in together on a rainy day.
