What you Will Need

You can buy perler beads at many crafts stores, walmart, etc. I grabbed this Glow in the Dark Perler Beads Bucket on amazon. We used it and some plain solid Perler Beads.

For these coaster and drink lids you are going to want to use a round perler pegboard. We lined a center circle to leave a hole for a straw. Then I let the kids design whatever they wanted. They chose fruit because it is Summery.

We ended up with lemons, limes, oranges, and watermelon. They used the glow in the dark beads for the center of the fruit, which I thought was super cute. Once they have their design laid out it’s time for a parent to step in. Plug in you iron and heat it to a medium/high setting.

Cover your design with the parchment paper and iron. The idea is for the beads to all melt together and fuse into one shape. Once I melted one side I removed the pegboard and placed parchment on the other side and ironed it too. This gives the coaster a little more stability.
