As a busy momma with three children in the house, I recommend that you try and make Baked Hama Perler Beads.
We have the house full of kids most of the time. And I love that! However, it’s sometimes difficult to come up with projects that are both stimulating and manageable at the same time.
Hama beads are one of our favorites – for big and small – and yes, even for adults! And we have a large collections of colorful beads for that reason.
It doesn’t matter if it summer or winter or if we are outside or inside.
I always like to see that kids and playmates like to gather around our Hama Beads.
We have a wonderful large box with both mixed and color sorted beads and its like magic. When the box it out on the table, kids and adults gets started.
It is a pleasure to look at! Especially if you are so lucky to also sit with a cup of tea and enjoy a piece of the wonderful danish brunsviger. Yummy!
One thing is true, the outcome of this creativity is never the same!!
We make plastic beads necklaces and bracelets. We iron the Pegboards for keepsakes and finally we have even started to bake them in the oven! You should try that.
Baking the beads is a great success!
Baked Hama Perler Beads
To begin with you place a handful of beads on a baking tray with baking parchment.
Make sure the beads all stand on their ends and with enough space in-between to melt down.
Then you bake the beads in a preheated oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes.
When the beads are cooled, they are ready for use.
We have also experimented with making perler beads bowls of various sizes.
It only requires a bowl and a little cooking oil to lubricate the inside of the bowl. Make sure the bowl can tolerate going into the oven,
All you have to do, is to pour the beads into the bowl and tilt/swivel. When done the beads should end up being distributed nicely around in one layer.
Bake the bowl in a preheated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes.
When it is baked, let it cool down a little before you gently can remove your bowl from the mold.
