Creativity for kids from Ikea.

Thanks to the integration workshop conducted for the family last month in Stuttgart, the kids were introduced to the Hama beads. These beads help your kids to get creative and create wonderful patterns or designs. Seeing the work they did at the workshop I was keen on buying these beads for them. I was advised to go to Ikea.

In Ikea I found out they are called Pyssla Beads. So I got a box of the beads along with the moulds for the kids to continue their designing.

The beads are to be placed into moulds in any fashion or pattern you like.

Once done, parental supervision is required now, since the beads have to be pressed onto the mould with the help of an iron. Place the ironing paper(which is provided) on top of the mould and iron it well.When done properly, the patterns come out easily from the mould.

You can decorate the kids rooms with their creative art. Fridge magnets, coasters can be made too. More patterns will be shown in the future posts.


  1. Those are really cute. I'd like to make rainbows to hang in my daughters room.

  2. ooh well done kiddos! those look wonderful:O)
    how are you doing with meeting people there? have you made friends? I have met other expats but you dont always click. So in all honesty I dont really know anyone around me.

  3. I love this! What a great idea. I'm going to have to look into it. My daughter is still too young, but soon.

  4. How super cool! I want these for my kiddos.

    Have a great weekend.



I love it when you stop by to say a few words...
