This was a fun quick craft I did with the kids.
It also gets rid of some of those beads in I have in that huge jar I bought from ikea.
Super easy, colorful and fun.
My kids have theirs filled with pennies, lego's, marbles and little rocks.
*** Update*** I've had some people ask questions about fumes form the plastic melting.
These are only cooking for 10 minutes or less so there is not a lot of time for any burning,
But please be sure to use melting beads because they are made to melt.
I opened a window and turned on the ceiling fan just in case.
I did start to smell something at about 8 minutes in, and I thought to myself,
"I can smell it, I bet they're done."
And they were.
I could have even pulled them out a little before if I was paying attention.
So if your worried about fumes just keep an eye on it and after 5 minutes check it every
minute and it should be pretty fumeless.
Like I said I barely started to smell it at 8 minutes, and it wasn't really too smelly.
Just keep an eye on it and you should be ok.
