Are you looking for a fun and easy activity to do with your boys? Creativity is the name of the game with Perler beads and we are really enjoying making all sorts of designs. They will love these!
Getting boys working on projects that they enjoy is the key to getting them learning. If your boy like video games and pixel art and likes to draw as well, he may well like Perler beads.
We really enjoy the huge variety of colors to work with and like to make up our own patterns. We also want to share those Perler Bead Pattern ideas with you!

Perler Bead Pattern List:
Gotta love those little perler beads. I had no idea you could be so creative with them until we got a bunch and gave them a try. I have to admit we are a wee bit addicted to them.
All of the wonderful colors! Getting a big container of beads shipped to my house was the best thing ever. We opened the package and we saw a ton of possibilities.
Here is what we have made so far. There is more to come!
This was the very first piece we put up on our site. Fun!
My son is making this series of Minecraft Perler Bead Patterns for the site. There are more to come.
Perler beads have been around for a while and we tried them when my son was little. While we enjoyed making the patterns they didn’t fit very nicely on a board or stick together well.
I highly suggest you buy Perler brand beads. They work great, their size is consistent and they melt very nicely as well. Plus they have a super color selection. They also have some unique beads like striped!
