How to Make Patterns and Permanent Templates
You need patterns and templates mainly for sewing crafts, wood crafts and paper crafts. Creating permanent templates is easy and has a couple of advantages. First, if you wish to create the same project more than once you will save a lot of time because the template is already prepared. And second, if you are working with a group, the templates are durable and can be easily passed along to the next person. Permanent templates are especially useful when making crafts with children.
Fuse Bead Crafts
Crafting with fuse beads or perler beads is an excellent way to keep kids happy and busy for hours. Kids like the look and feel of the beads and enjoy making projects with them all year ‘round. The beads help the fine motor skills of the kids, introduce them to many new colors, help the kids learn to count and teach concentration and patience. These days, there are so many colors available and even beads with effects such as glow in the dark. Below you will find links to our fuse bead projects and patterns so the kids can get started creating a project.

It is not easy for them at the beginning to cut with the scissors or draw a straight line, but it is amazing what those little hands can still do. With practice and within time, the child’s skills will improve. Encourage the child to craft as often as possible. With each finished project, the sense of accomplishment is so positive and the child will continue to enjoy crafting for years to come and develop its own creative ideas.
