Perler beads or hama beads

Perler beads otherwise known as hama beads are tiny plastic beads (available in lots of colors) which can be arranged on a peg board (available in different shapes) to form various designs.They are then fused together by applying hot iron on them with a wax/oil paper in between the iron and the design. These are great for grown up kids as they develop concentration and creativity. The designs created can be used in many ways like fridge magnet, greeting cards, key chain, charms, toys etc... there are plenty of designs available on the internet to start with..

Here is a quick photo story on how to fuse beads and create designs
