Winter Play

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Celebrate winter sports and outdoor fun with these skis, snowboard, skates, and sled. When it is too cold to be playing outside, these projects are a great way to bring the sport inside!

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Creme - 136
  • Pearl Yellow - 22
  • Turquoise - 289
  • Pastel Lavender - 40
  • Periwinkle Blue - 30
  • Dark Blue - 396
  • Brown - 354
  • Grey - 198

See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here. You will also need:

  • Quick-drying adhesive
  • Twine
  • Needle
Step: 2

Download the pdf for the Winter Play Project Pattern. You will use the super-size and large heart pegboards to create your projects. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads following the pattern.

Step: 3

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.

Step: 4

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.

Step: 5

ASSEMBLY: Skates: Add lacing to each of the skates with the twine. Knot the two sets of laces together to connect the skates.

Step: 6

Sled: Glue the two sled runners to the sled with the rounded end of the sled top to the rear.

Step: 7

Skis: While the beads are still warm from ironing, round up the ski tips.
