Decorated maracas

This week has been showcasing some fun things we did for my daughter’s birthday party (Fiesta 14!)

Perler Bead Roundup

I’m going to be honest. I have not played with perler beads in along time. Only because when we sit down…we end up making the patterns that came with the bucket and don’t think outside of the box.
