As the second quarter of the year begins, I have been researching hard on something new to learn & hopefully to master it…

After about a week of deep research, I have decided to give this a try…

In the European countries, this has gained popularity over the past few months. I am sure this craft has been around here for a while but not as popular…

Since it is new, I can’t really get a lot of instructions on how to make them. I only have photos of the finished products to refer to. This is good enough as it is a pretty easy craft once you have mastered the basics.

 

Here it is…Perler Beads! Perler beads (also known as Hama beads or Nabbi beads) are plastic fusible beads. These colorful beads are usually arranged on plastic pegboards to form patterns and then fused together with a clothes iron. They can also be strung into necklaces, woven into key-chains, or even assembled into three-dimensional decors.

Crafting Perler beads is a fun and inexpensive art form that inspires creativity. It can also help young children develop hand-eye coordination, learn color names, and basic counting. Most importantly, it teaches kids to be patient and concentration. One small mistake may require you to re-do the whole thing!

Well, at first, I was afraid to pick up this craft as I wasn’t sure if the kids can actually have the patience & focus to complete the designs that they love. But I soon realised that if the kids love the selected design, they will definitely be adamant to complete it!

Here is what I first experimented, with the help of some photos…

 

Then, I started to experiment with more designs…

 

 

 

OK, this craft is extremely addictive! Try it for yourself and you will see why I say so…LOL
