These hands-on activities are awesome ways to have some soccer fun with kid ️⚽️
My two older boys and I are complete soccer nerds. We LOVE all things soccer. Although my younger boys aren't really that into soccer, they wanted to make mama a soccer-themed perler bead craft - they're so cute!
They love working with perler beads. The boys use these small plastic beads (also called fuse beads or Hama beads) to make all sorts of cute creatures, critters, and characters. The boys turn these DIY crafts into little toys, keychains, and decor. And they wanted to make me something soccer-related before I went away for a soccer weekend with their older brother.
Some other ways to use these soccer crafts are:
- celebrating the World Cup (Women's and Men's)
- End of season treats
- Soccer parties
- Soccer unit study

- just because
Find Out More About These Soccer Perler Beads Patterns
This free printable pack of soccer perler bead patterns features 6 symbols.
These patterns were created to be made on a hexagon board 31 peg diameter with 5mm beads. You don't have to use that exact recommendation - my boys were able to easily use on the square boards that we have 😊
The soccer symbols with perler bead patterns included in this set are:
- Soccer ball
- Soccer field
How to Make These Soccer-Themed Perler Bead Crafts
Perler bead art time with kids can be super fun when you use these tips and tricks. You'll find that it makes it much easier to create all of these cool crafts.
I recommend that you have ALL of your supplies ready and organized.
I bought a big canister of perler beads and perler bead peg boards that attach (in case the boys want to create large crafts). And I got a plastic craft organizer so the boys would be able sort the perler beads by colors. I also think this perler beads kit looks amazing and comes with everything!
Some kids prefer having perler beads tweezer tools. These types of tools are totally optional - my boys like to use their fingers.
After the perler bead creation is completed on the pegboard, place it on a flat surface.
The set of perler bead pegboards that I bought includes reusable ironing paper. I've discovered that you can also use parchment paper or waxed paper. This type of paper is placed over your completed creation.
You need an iron to fuse your perler beads. I set the temperature of my iron to a medium heat. When your iron is warm, press firmly on the ironing paper and slowly move around. I take a peek at the perler bead creation about every 30 seconds to see how well the beads are melting together.
When using these soccer perler bead patterns, I suggest going through each template and having your child pick out a favorite one for their first craft.
If you don't have the exact colors, please don't worry. Use what colors you have and enjoy your special designs 😀 In fact, you can easily customize these soccer crafts to match your favorite team or country!
And you might find a better production process for your craft time. If so, go for it the next time!
Cools Ideas for Enjoying Crafts Featuring Soccer Perler Beads
After showing your kids these soccer craft patterns, talk about their ideas for these perler bead art activities. Brainstorm ways to enjoy and share your soccer perler bead crafts, too.
One idea is to start a collection of perler bead crafts. My boys like to put their crafts in their bedrooms, as well as decorate our shelves and bookcases with them. They have quite a growing collection at this point with our free Pokemon, Minecraft, Easter, Earth Day, and Super Mario packs.
Oh, and another idea is to leave a space or hole near the top of your perler bead craft. You can add a key chain ring or loose binder ring. Your kids can use this type of craft for a soccer charm, key chains, decorate party gift bags (super cute gift tags!), and party favors.
If your child is on a soccer team, these type of perler bead creations would be super cute gifts to the coach and other players at the end of the season. (Make sure to grab our free soccer cootie catcher, too!)
Your kids can also create their own designs and perler bead pattern with soccer themes.
