The kids have picked up a new hobby this year~ Hama Bead Crafting. It has been the ” in thing” since 2014 and we are slowly catching on to the latest trends.

I’ ve been  pining a lot of pictures on my  Hama Pinterest Board and love the designs that I have been seeing.  The kids too have their favourites and have picked up a few designs to start creating.

They were inspired by the tools that they saw in the game Minecraft and attempted to make their own version of the diamond sword and pick axe.

Monkey boy chose a mixture of blues for the sword and gave red accents to represent a blazing sword.  He named it Fire  & Ice.

Tiger girl has no interest in Minecraft and drew inspiration from her favourite show  My Little Pony instead.  Both of us worked on creating one of her favourite ponies – Rainbow Dash.

Tiger girl had so much fun that she requested to create another pony. This time she decided on Pinkie Pie. I on the other hand tried my hand replicating a famous Sanrio character- My Melody.

I decided to make my creation into a key chain as a Valentine’s Day present for a girlfriend of mine who loves My Melody. I hope that she enjoys her little present from me.

  1. The ponies are cute!! This looks fun and not too difficult for craft noobs, I guess? I used to have a My Melody “charm” that was hung on my pager chain during school days… haha… those were the Sanrio times :p

  2. those are very creative ideas,I’ve never used hama beads.Seems a funful activity!

    Also,can you remove the link in no.8 position.Sorry I made a mistake while typing that link 🙂

  3. I’m so late with this trend and I hate to admit but this is the first time I learned about this craft. It looks so fun but needs a lot of patience.

  4. What a fun craft to do together as a family. The projects turned out great! I love My Little Pony and so do, or did, my daughters’. I have never even heard of Hama beads until now. I will have to look into this for my girls.

    Thank you for linking up with us on the Oh My Heartsie Girls Wordless Wednesday Linky Party!

    Wishing you a fabulous week!


  5. Awesome! I used to play with hama bead when I was little. Back then I didn’t know how it was called, all I know I could create some fancy thing from the bead. I think my creation was stored somewhere at my mom’s house 😀

  6. I used to have this when I was younger!!! It is great that children are exposed to this because it develops their fine motor movements and creativity.
