Here is a great idea for younger kids... Place them in a cookie cutter and bake on low... why didn't I think of that. Have you tried this? Does it work?
Above are some melting bead bowls as well... Very cool! I got this one from the Meaningful Mama. Again, any suggestions from people who have done this?
There are lots of video on 'how to' of melting beads... This might give you an idea of what they are if you are unfamiliar.
Fall is coming, inside activities are going to be needed... Here is a GREAT one for lots of ages!
