Where are you currently at in your Christmas traditions? Do you go cut down a Christmas tree? Have you made ornaments with your kids – done Elf on the Shelf?

What about drive and look at Christmas lights (which was one of my favorite things to do)?

I’d love to hear.

Then I’d also love to suggestion another fun kids’ Christmas craft for you to try. Santa perler beads! Kids are going to love making these for Christmas.

If you’ve never tried perler beads before, they are recommended for ages six and up. I haven’t met a kid that doesn’t love them (also known as hama beads, fuse beads, or melty beads). But don’t be shy about jumping in – adults love them too!

Santa Hama Beads

Note: A few of these patterns are larger than a 29 x 29 pegboard, so you’ll either need a extra large pegboard (49 x 69 tall) or to put four square pegboards together (or two depending on how wide the pattern is).

These cuties take 111 red, 151 white, 44 flesh, 20 green, 2 blue, 30 black, and 2 pink beads.
