Summer is in full swing. The pools are open, the sprinklers are out, and the outdoor activities are in full swing. Then it happens… Those good old summer thunderstorms. Now you have the kiddos stuck inside and looking for somethings to do. If you have ever worked with Perler Beads before you know you can print off or buy plenty of pre-made designs, but sometimes they just want to think outside of the box.Perler Beads come in all sorts of colors and packages. The first time that I ever used them was for J’s MINECRAFT Party. It was a great activity for the begining of the party while the kids trickled in through the door. They were a big hit with the boys and I knew that it would become a go-to craft.
