Have you got this experience of putting some small fusible plastic beads onto a plastic peg board to make a picture, iron it to melt the beads together to form a pattern? These kinds of small fusible plastic beads are hama beads, which the most popular size is 5mm diameter, also being called “Midi” beads suitable for age range 5+ are normally available in Pandahall.

DIY kid craft with fuse beads is a simple concept. Place these colorful perler beads of your choice on pegboard to form designs, use an iron which set to “hot” to melt them together carefully but firmly, and then peel the pattern off. Craft done! The 5mm diameter fuse beads are suitable for about 3 and a half to 10. You can get much larger hama beads for small kids, and much smaller diameter beads for older children and yourself. I prefer to use midi beads often.
