This is a great project, perfect for any summer time party, and these fantastic looking – and functional – coasters also make the perfect gift! They are fun to make and are a good fine motor skill development project for any younger child.


Material

  • Red, Green, White and Black Melty or Hama Beads
  • 1 Round Melty/Hama Bead Template (coaster size is preferable)

Method

  1. Using a round template, design your watermelon pattern with the beads. (Have a look at our picture for a guide)
  2. Iron them, as you would usually do, peel them off the template, and there you go... beautiful watermelon coasters! Perfect for any summer party!
  3. Take care that you iron them enough to melt the beads together - but not to much that they start to bend - as your drinks need to perfectly balance...
