This is a tub of 3,000 assorted solid coloured beads. Hama beads are plastic fusible beads. The coloured beads are arranged on a plastic pegboard to form patterns or pictures. Once the pattern or picture is complete, the beads are fused together with a clothes iron. Hama beads can also be strung into necklaces, woven into keychains, or even assembled into three-dimensional decors.
Hama beads are a fun and inexpensive art form that inspires creativity. It can also help young children develop hand-eye coordination skills, and can assist with learning colour names, shapes and basic counting.
