Summer flew by this year! We barely made a dent in our Summer bucket list and didn’t get in nearly as many playdates as we hoped, so one last get together with good friends was in order before school started. And since our girls live for all things crafty and cute, we decided on a Crafternoon With Beados and some of our besties.
If you haven’t heard of Beados, it is an arts and crafts line of Moose Toys. In three easy steps, kids can create cute characters with colorful beads that fuse together with a quick spray of water. No glue, no mess! I’m down with that.
The girls were so excited to get started with their friends. They were seriously circling me as I set up for our playdate.
When I finally ripped open the packages, the girls were in a frenzy and dug in right away. The cute puppy templates were in high demand with these girls!
Eack kit comes with beads, a bead storage tray (picture above), design templates, design tray (pictured below), a tweezer pen, display stands, and a spray bottle. Plenty of things to go around, choose from and share with friends.
It’s super simple. You put the template behind the clear tray and follow the template by adding the colored beads on top to make your design. Very easy activity for our crew who ranged in age from 4-10 years old.
Look at those fine motor skills! So much concentration building penguins and puppies.
Once you have your design set, you spray it with water. No glue needed! Just wait for it to dry.
That’s where the Quick Dry Design Station makes things easier. 15 minutes under the fan, and this cute puppy is ready!
Once it is dry, gently peel your creation off of the tray, place in a stand, and use your imagination. Each activity and themed pack also comes with cute matching scenes to make character play easy and fun.
This is such an easy and cute craft project that we’ll be using a lot around here to keep those little hands busy. And since Beados are available at Target and other retailers, refills will be easy on this mom to find!
