What are Perler Beads?
Perler beads (you might call Hama beads, or fusible beads) are small coloured plastic beads that you arrange on peg boards to make patterns, they fuse together with the heat from an iron. They make a great craft activity for kids from age 6 right up to adults (there are bigger fusible bead options for little hands too). Making Perler bead crafts is a great activity if you have a group of kids of different ages, and it’s the perfect tween and teen craft too.
