Download the PDF for the Tombstone Ring Toss Project Pattern. You will use 2 large squares and 1 large circle pegboard for your project. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads following the pattern.
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. DO NOT OVER-IRON as this will cause the beads to close and can make assembly of your project more challenging. 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: Assemble the tombstones and gates by inserting the upright portion into the base. For the skull tombstone, also insert the candles into each base. For the small tombstones with the cross, insert the zombie hands into each base.
On the tree monster, glue each of the arms to the trunk as indicated by the pink dots on the diagram. Insert the trunk into the base as shown.
TOMBSTONE RING TOSS GAME: Create a spooky cemetery scene on a heavy cardboard surface using the Perler pieces and your favorite props. Glue or velcro your pieces in place.
Determine where the player must stand to play. Assign points for successfully ringing the various objects:
- 10 points for either of the small tombstones
- 30 points for the skull tombstones
- 40 points for the RIP tombstone
- 50 points for either of the zombie hands alone
- 100 points for the tree monster top or arms
- Hit the gates at all, you lose all your points!
