Fuse beads are fun for children of all ages. I'd never seen them until my daughter brought home her creations from school. I thought it was kind of odd that she would be spending her time lining up little pieces of plastic on a board and then having the teacher iron them together. When I tried making one, I discovered how fun and worthwhile an activity it could be. There are different brands like perler beads, hama bead or any fuse or iron bead you can find. You can help your youngest and let their imagination create an artistic flowers, cartoons, hearts and much more. Have fun!
