Ghost Fused Bead Kit

Our Halloween craft for this week was a Perler fused bead kit in the shape of a ghost. I remember making a ton of different shapes with these beads growing up.

When we were at Joann’s a few weeks ago, Riley saw the Halloween kits and begged for the ghost. I figured he would really like it. He thought it was a necklace at first. After explaining the idea to him, he LOVED the thought that he could melt the beads to stick together.

It’s pretty straight forward. Place the beads on the pegboard in the pattern. And cover with the enclosed paper before melting it with the iron for 10-20 seconds. Apparently letting a 5 year old count to 20 is a bit too long as our beads really melted. Riley still loves it and that is all that really matters.

I like how this type of project teaches patience  and counting to make a pattern. He has asked to get the other Halloween kits so we will purchase more beads. However I think we will get the bigger size beads as I think he could place them easier. He was having a bit of a struggle with the tiny beads. This kit was completely worth the $2.50. If you are looking for a cheap, fun and pretty easy craft that is mess free, I recommend trying one of these bead kits.
