Today we are happy to be bringing to you our review of the Mega Pack of Super Beads from Zirrly. We were given a choice of projects and we chose a Mega Pack of these beads with all the tools to complete several projects. You fuse beads together using water ( no iron needed ). The beads can be used for children as young as 5+ years old with some assistance from someone older and also work well for older children as well as adults, making it a fun family arts & crafts project.
Our Mega Pack came with Plastic project boards, Project cards ( that fit to the boards), 4500+ beads, Beading tool ,two small water Spray bottles, Project instruction sheets showing diagrams and tips & tricks on the back !The children looked them over and decided to do their own choice of project or shape as I felt this would be more enjoyable for them in the time we had on that afternoon. I got out some of my Tupperware containers and divided up some of the beads for each of the children. I explained how they needed to put the beads in the design they wanted to have and then we would lightly spray them with water using the spray bottles. (being careful not to saturate the beads) They really seemed to enjoy thinking about what they wanted to make and then sorting through the beads and placing them on the boards in the configuration needed. We sprayed them and went about our afternoon.Later that evening I came back and using the tool loosened the projects one by one (slowly and carefully so I wouldn’t pull them apart). I was amazed at how well just spraying them with water had made them adhere to one another. The children really like the things they made and still have them in on their desk area near their computers.This project is Easy, Fun and very affordable if you are looking for something that does not take over an hour. I feel it is an affordable project that could be used for VBS, Summer Camp, Sunday School or just a nice project for your children to do. Many small projects can be done from one Mega Pack and if you have more then 4 students/children you would need more then one Mega Pack, so that you have enough project boards for each one. The first project is done by Faith (age 15) Rainbow Heart.
