Perler Beads. Those tiny pieces of plastic used for making designs that you melt together with an iron after completion. Yep, those are it. Perler Beads.
We will be creating multiple projects (8+) during our time together. There will be variety. There will be functionality. Students will have a checklist of available projects to choose from. Then they will choose a pattern from that projects folder. They can complete their projects in any order but will need to complete at least one from every category. If they finish all categories and have extra time/weeks, they will be allowed to make additional projects from their favorite category. Some categories include: Large animal project, 3-D project, Large shape project, Christmas-themed ornament, Christmas character ornament, Small shape magnet, Holiday (not Christmas), Character magnet, Functional (mask, coaster, photo frame, etc)
Requirements: Must be able to sit still, concentrate, and follow a pattern. Important for keeping projects from getting bumped.
Materials Needed: NA
*Due to the need to provide adequate supervision for our entire program, classes registering fewer than 5 students at sign-up may be canceled in order to allow for appropriate coverage.
