Download the PDF for the Football ManiaProject Pattern. Assemble TWO large square pegboards as shown on the project pattern to create the field. Cut out the individual halves of the chart and tape them together so that you can see the whole design at once. To create the other pieces, you will only need to use one pegboard at a time. If you’re using clear pegboards, slide the actual-size pattern underneath them. Now place all the beads for your 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. 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 step two. 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: Insert the football players’ feet into the slots in the field.
Align the field goal post with the base segment to create a foot. Set the assembled field goal post in the end zone on the field, add the football, and toss the coin to start the game!
