Rainbow Perler Bead Keyring

We have rainbow fever! You too? Today we are joining another great group of bid bloggers with rainbow crafts and activities!

We made this beautiful rainbow perler bead keyring!

I wanted to do this with my daughter, but my son was more interested. At age 3, he amazed me with his fine motor skills and perserverance!

I set it up like this, giving him the pattern to work with! using the big circle peg board and Rainbow colour perler beads:

This is a very good activity, not only for fine motor skills and hand eye coordination, but for visual perception too: knowing which colour must go where!

PS The circle peg board is around 30 years old. I got it as a birthday present with perler beads before I even went to school!

He loved doing this “big kid” activity with mommy, can you tell?

We took one bead out, that is for the keychain. After he packed out the rainbow, we melted(tiny bit) it together with the iron.


I added the keychain and keyring and there you have a beautiful rainbow perler bead keyring!
