More Hama Beads

After my last post about Hama Beads, and discovering (thanks to a comment on that post by Merry from CraftsMerrily) that you can in fact get transparent boards for Midi Beads (like this one) I just had to order some!

They arrived a couple of days ago and yesterday we got them out to have a go with. I think the frames looked great and are really easy to use. Thomas tried one out and made a lovely fish using the frame and one of the provided images. Jasmine didn’t want to copy the image exactly but she did use the frame and picture to make a butterfly, just in her own colours! They also chose to make a star (Jasmine) and a flower (Thomas).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With my recent order I also got an Inspiration Book as I love looking through them to get ideas of stuff we can do! I saw a large Santa design that I thought looked really good, and when I was talking to Thomas about it he wanted to have a go. As we do now have 4 large square peg boards (the boards clip together to make one HUGE board!) I thought, why not! I knew I would end up doing it as the design was far to tricky for Thomas, but expected that he might help a little bit. He didn’t, and over 2 hours later I finished! I have to admit, I am quite impressed with the finished design 🙂
