How to Make These Monthly Perler Bead Crafts

Perler bead craft time with your children can be extra fun when you use these tips and tricks (plus easy instructions). It makes it so much easier to create all of these cool crafts.

My top tip is to have ALL of your materials prepared and organized before you get to work.

We have a large canister of perler beads and perler bead peg boards. And I purchased a plastic craft organizer to sort the perler beads by colors to make it easier to find the ones we want when working. This perler beads kit looks awesome and comes with everything you need!

Many kids like to use perler beads tweezer tools. My boys prefer to work with their fingers.

After your perler bead craft is completed on the pegboard, put it on a flat surface.

Place reusable ironing paper or parchment paper or waxed paper on top of the craft.

You need an iron to fuse your perler beads. I set the temperature of the iron to a medium heat. When your iron is warm enough, press firmly on the ironing paper and slowly move around. I take a look at the perler bead creation about every 30 seconds to see how well the beads are melting together.

If you don't have the exact colors as shown in the patterns, don't worry. That's the beauty of a perler bead craft - you can customize it with colors you have.

Cool Ideas for Enjoying This Calendar with Kids

As with any craft or activity with your kids, I encourage you to chat with them about the process. Ask them to share their ideas for making and enjoying.

You may want to make each month's perler bead craft at the start of the month. This approach can be an awesome way to spark conversations about upcoming events and holidays.

OR you may want to make all of the monthly themes at once. It's totally up to you!

Another idea is to attach your perler bead crafts to the calendar. OR you can keep separate as part of a collection.
