Nerd Town: Perler Beads
Awhile back, I helped my friend Nick make a bunch of nerdy things out of perler beads. If you don't know, perler beads are plastic beads that melts and fuse together really well. They can be purchased at any craft store along with plastic peg boards that are used for the actual making of your design. When I was a kid these were pretty popular for my age. Now they are a hit with people still my age, only we like to make Mario and other 8-bit creations. These are a really easy craft, but since it involves a hot iron, I do recommend reading the directions and maybe having some adult supervision.
