Hama beads are new to our family and have been something we have looked at but up to now have never purchased. I was lucky to be offered the chance to review them by Patch of Puddles and we jumped at the chance to give them a go.
We received a set of beads and K and I settled down to make some summer themed pictures. We made a beach scene with someone flying a kite and another on the beach along with a huge sun and bright blue sky. When it came to ironing them I failed and had the temperature wrong on the iron and ended up melting both the beads and board.
We then tried again and K made a colourful butterfly and then a lady in a bikini, sunglasses and hat holding a drink. Again I tried ironing them but this time I was too timid and din’t iron them enough.
We loved making these but for now will stick to making pictures and then reusing the beads rather than me wrecking all the efforts- I knew ironing wasn’t one of my talents!
