Design your own Minecraft character using Hama Beads (sold at various outlets) or PYSSLA beads from IKEA.
Students colour in their design using the grid (grids match the 18x18 square provided in the packs). They can then record how many of each colour bead they will need, and then add them all up to record how many beads they will need altogether.
They can then make their character by following their design. Adults then iron the creations to complete the character (instructions on product).
"When your design is ready, cover the beads with baking paper and iron over them with an iron set to medium warm/hot for a few seconds, so that the beads melt together.
Let the bead shape cool after ironing. Place it on a flat surface, so it does not bend."
