Activity: Melting Bead Shapes

We made shapes using beads like these (but a different brand). The kids were pretty excited about this craft, but we had some problems with the execution. Some of the beads didn’t melt as well as others, and I ended up with some sad kids when their creations didn’t stay together. Probably won’t do this one again. Very disappointing!
