Its Summertime which means more arts and crafts, more Perler Beads, more games and just more fun! My kids had so much fun working on these and even after, my son played an entire game pretending to catch Pokemon with the different Pokeballs when they were finished.
Note: When melting them, feel free to melt them for however long works for your family. Mine like them a little more melted than usual to where the colors blend together instead of the bead look. However both versions will look great!

Back to the Future is my husband’s all time favorite movie and the kids love it also. When we came across Perler Bead patterns of Doc and Marty, I just had to build it!
Special thanks to the original poster of this picture which inspired us.
We like our beads a little more heated to give it the blended effect instead of the beaded effect. However, whichever way you choose, they will turn out amazing!
Of course, the DeLorean
These were super fun to build and only took about an hour or so for all three. The DeLorean was definitely the hardest, however it was super fun. They now hold a nice place of honor in our Perler Bead Collection!
This Perler bead craft was inspired by the classic game Tetris. As I was looking around for a new craft pattern for the kids, I saw this pin for sale on Etsy. However, when I went there it was no longer for sale, so the kids and I made our own.
We are putting Command Velcro strips on the back to put on the wall behind my desk at school. We had super fun creating them.
The patterns are below. Since they were pretty small, I was able to put 3 on each grid.
My kids and I have recently discovered Perler beads and the amazing fun crafts that you can make out of them. Perler beads are found at craft stores like Hobby Lobby and can be used to make awesome patterns. Finish them off with an iron and they are perfect to hang up or have cute decorations for a party or bedroom.
Here are a few Zelda Themed Patterns- We will add more as we find and make them.
