Do you do perler beads? I had no idea what they even were until a few years ago. If you’re still in a parenting stage that involves being wary of choking hazards, then you likely aren’t stocked up on perler beads, but we are drowning in them at our house.
For the uninitiated, perler beads are tiny plastic cylinders with a
hole in the middle that you arrange on a little pegboard and then melt
with an iron so they stick together and maintain their collective shape.
Quinn and his interest in lining things up.
He’s good at arranging all the little beads and carefully bringing them
to the kitchen counter for ironing. Quinn likes it when I just hang
out with him while he does his own thing, so sometimes I’ll play around
with the perler beads myself. I decided to make an alphabet, so every
time I sit down with him and he’s in perler bead mode I make the next
couple of letters. For some reason Quinn’s favorite letter is R (I
think because it’s fun to do in sign language which is just crossing
your fingers, but who knows?), and he’s looking forward to me making
that one when I get there.
