Let’s celebrate the beginning of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil with a Hama Beads extravaganza!
…and for any little ones who do not really appreciate football, this is a great opportunity to sneak in a geography lesson by making flags for all the different countries taking part!
What you’ll need
Hama Beads are small plastic beads which are arranged on a special pegboard to create a shape. They need to be ironed so that the melted beads fuse together.
- Hama beads in different colours
- Hama beads square ‘pegboard’
How to make it
- Our first World Cup design is the England flag, but you can easily adapt it to represent the colours of your team (…see what I’ve done here!!)
We also have:
- The England shirt.
- A football pitch.
- A studded football boot.
- The World Cup trophy!
You could turn the finished Hama Bead masterpiece into key rings or fridge magnets…
