Remember those plastic beads you put on a shaped peg stencil then iron and they fuse together? I loved that project when I was a kid. Well, my son discovered these on our last trip to the craft store so we now have a set of three ocean themed ones (dolphin, fish, and squid). It takes a little more fine motor control than my tot has for when you get a lot of beads close together, but it was a fun do-together project. When the beads got too close together for him to work with he just told me what colors he wanted where and I put them on.
