My brother came to me lately and asked if I could do some art projects with my nephew (6) and Niece (4). Apart from kinder and school art they spend most of their time asking to go onto a computer or watch television so he thought I could get them interested in something else. I decided to share a crafty love I haven't done for years, Fuse beads! after much coaxing my niece agreed to do /one/ craft with me. This is only some of the things we ended up making, and my nephew joined in too. They now love making special magnets and pendants and even been asking about different types of colours and things such as fluros and glow in the dark and what they do. It also helps with their hand/eye skills and even my parents get in on the making so everyone has fun.

 Excuse my horrible table

This was one of the first ones. Her name starts with S and she decided she wanted it to glow in the dark. After doing the S I only needed to help keep the beads on she was hooked. She made about 4 of these but took the rest before I could take a photo lol. We even left a gap in the beads so it could be threaded and worn or hung up.

I did these, and of course the hand was not done in their company but later on. Tongue

Here are some more I did with the nephew. Because he was a little older I thought he could do some harder ones. He liked making the dinosaur the most.

And one more thing because I am proud of it. I kinda didn't have a pattern so I went by trial and error. A 3d mini gameboy! I even have a slot in the back for a game cartridge!

Thanks for the feedback Smiley we did have fun and now they want to do more crafty things with me. I like my computer games too but I'm glad I could show them something fun to do that they can keep xD
