This year, for Valentine's, Buddy wanted to make something special for his classmates at school. So, we pulled out the perler beads and got to work. We've been playing with the larger beads. I think they are way easier for small fingers to work with.
He designed the hearts himself and I ironed them and hot glued a pin to the back.
We mounted most of the pins inside some ready made cards that Buddy received in his Karate class. I'm torn about advertising with a valentine, but he really likes them and it was less work for me. He's really excited to give his friends something that he designed. He even has one special heart for his favorite friend in class. What do you think? Better than candy?
