My 5 year old brother loves to see the things I make with perler beads. More than that he loves Super Mario and co.
I made a few examples for him and then left him to make whatever he wanted assuming that he wouldn't last very long. How wrong was I?! He spent about an hour ever so carefully placing bead after bead to create Mario. I was extremely impressed with his patience in making this! Plus he made an original design whereas mine are simply variations of ones i've seen online.
