Hama Beads

It's not every day that we as busy mums have time to plan and set up an activity that will keep our kids entertained but there are some great products out there that can help us out on those busy days.

On our latest trip to one of our favourite store "IKEA" we found what i remember as Hama beads but ikea call pyssla beads.

They are great for pincer grip practice which helps with writing skills and you can use a set of tweezers to pick them up for a different technique

These are a great time wasting activity that kids of any age enjoy. It does have extremely small parts but under supervision you can let your imagination go wild!

Simply choose your beads and place them on the pegboard then place a sheet of baking paper over your design then use your iron on a low heat setting to melt the beads together.

Tara made a bracelet!
