Beauty And The Beast Hama Bead Craft For Kids

Beauty And The Beast Hama Bead Craft For Kids

Today Sylvia and I decided to have a Beauty & The Beast Themed Activity Day. We discussed the activities we could do and Sylvia suggested creating Belle out of Hama Beads.

Beauty And The Beast Craft

Sylvia has lots of Hama Beads and plenty of yellow so we got to work creating the perfect Belle. We got a huge tub of them from Ikea last year and they have lasted a long time.

We found a template online and Sylvia followed the instructions perfectly. It did take some time, a lot longer than we thought. This activity was a fantastic way to build language and social skills. We talked and chatted for an hour and a half as we worked together.

I helped Sylvia separate the different colour beads. This involved a lot of sorting and counting skills. I didn’t realise before we began just how educational Hama beads can be. However they are great for extending mathematical skills.

The beads are super small, so it’s not an activity for a much younger child, however the size of Hama Beads can create a challenge and help children develop fine motor skills.

Sylvia did a fantastic job creating her Belle. It really did turn out awesome and I was so impressed.

Once we completed the Beauty and The Beast Hama Bead Craft we went to look for an Iron to melt the beads together, however Daddy seems to have hidden it well away so we are waiting for him to come home to do the final part.

Using Hama Beads can be real fun. It’s something we enjoy doing and is a fun learning activity which both girls and boys alike can enjoy.

      Well, that’s why you Iron the beads and keep them in a container 🙂

    I’ve never tried bead crafts with the grand kids before. Knowing how much they love to craft, I’m sure they’d love making one of these.

      I’m sure your grandkids would enjoy it.

    What a great idea that is cool, might be something I look into for my grandson to help with counting, and those motor skills.

    There are so many beads in that suitcase – that is a lot of creativity waiting to happen. I think the crafts are very cute and fun to do.

    I’d like to have those bead stuff too! Will you post it once you are done with ironing?

    That’s so neat. My son is more an of a Lego kid, but I bet if I told him we could make something Halo or Minecraft related with the beads he would love it.
