minecraft perler beads.

Milo loves following patterns, puzzles, and building legos. So perler beads are a great activity for him! After seeing how much he enjoyed a few of the $1 kits from Micheals, I bought him a giant tub of them.  So we have been busy looking at what people have created with them and then getting inspired to make our own creations. Milo has recently been playing minecraft, so we thought these little characters would translate well into the beads.  He loved how these turned out – I especially love the sword. He took these to school the next day to show his friends, so that declares these an absolute success! HA!

I saw this on pinterest, and since its been so rainy lately, I thought I’d give it a try with milo. We gathered our metal cookie cutters and put them down on a pan. We filled the cutters with the beads, and baked at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. We punched them out of the cookie cutters…and then…..Meh. I dunno. These didn’t turn out as great as I thought. We made a few others, that aren’t shown because its hard to tell what they are. I think that was the problem…The tree, bell and butterfly were our best ones because they were easy to tell what they are. It passed the time and was fun at least! Milo kept asking when we were going to eat them!
