Download the PDF for the Halloween Bingo Project Pattern. Use the large square and large hexagon pegboards for the game pieces. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place the beads for the project.
Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. Let the design cool.
Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat the fusing. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.
Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.
ASSEMBLY: The project sheet includes 8 different bingo cards. Print out the cards on pages 3-6. Trim and mount the matching front and back to white cardstock cut to 4 x 5 inches.
Playing Bingo: Make sure each player has a bingo card and markers—candy corn is perfect for this! Place the Perler bead game pieces into a hat or container for the bingo caller to use. The caller pulls out one game piece at a time, identifying what it is. Players put a marker on the corresponding picture on their card. When the player has marked three in a row—horizontally, vertically, or diagonally—he or she calls out BINGO!
