1o Easter Perler Bead Patterns and Ideas!
My kids LOVE perler beads!
And the crazy thing is that perler beads are nothing new!
They’ve been around for a while. I was making perler bead creations when I was a kid! Which I guess really wasn’t that long ago;)
What are perler beads?
Perler beads are basically plastic beads that you place on a pegboard to create patterns and designs.
How To Use Perler Beads
To make beautiful perler bead patterns you place the beads on pegboards as mentioned above, and then you cover the design with parchment paper and iron it.
Ironing it melts the beads together so that you can remove them from the pegboard, iron the other side, and then have a beautiful perler bead toy!
The kids make the designs and you iron them:)
If you and your kids already use perler beads then you know how much fun they are.
If you aren’t, then you really need to start! They are not only a fun, but an educational craft!
Because they require concentration and precision, they are excellent for helping to develop fine motor skills.
Regular perler beads are generally best for kids ages six and up. Although I’m sure some five year olds could do them.
For younger kids, they make perler biggie beads! Biggie beads are larger and easier for younger children to handle. They are recommended for ages four and up, but my daughter could easily do them at the age of three.
Perler Bead Ideas
So here are 10 easter perler bead patters and ideas that you should try!
These two different easter chicks are some that my kids made for easter this year!
When making your perler beads, be careful not to iron them for too long. They will start to spread out and lose their shape if they are melted too much.
You can tell by looking at the chicks below that some were melted more than others. I like the look of the perler beads that aren’t heated too much. You can still see the perler beads.
But the kids like them better when they melt together enough that you don’t see the holes in the perler beads. So I guess it’s a matter of preference:)
