Try something a little different by creating this melted Hama bead bowl. It would make a lovely present for someone special.

Materials
Hama beads
Ovenproof bowl
A little oil
Kitchen towel paper

Method
Use an ovenproof bowl that you want to replicate with your beads.

Pour in a little oil and wipe around with some kitchen towel paper. This will help the beads stick to the sides of the bowl and slip out easily after they have melted.
Pour some Hama beads into the bowl and spread around the bottom. It's important that all the beads touch each other.

Pour some more beads in and spread around the sides of the bowl. The oil will help them stick on. It's a little fiddly making sure you have filled the gaps but it's worth the patience.

Older kids could try and make a design with the colours but it looks great multi coloured too.
Place the bowl in the oven at 200 degress for 10 minutes.
Check on melting progress on a regular basis.
When the beads at the top have started to sag a little, you will know that the rest of the beads have also softened and melted together.

Take the bowl out of the oven and leave to cool.
Once cool, gently slip the melted bead bowl out of the ovenproof bowl.
