Hama beads are a fun and inexpensive art form that inspires creativity. It can also help young children develop hand-eye coordination skills, and can assist with learning colour names, shapes and basic counting.
Crafting with Hama beads is recommended for ages 5 and above. Of course, the ironing should only be done by an adult. Each Hama bead is only 5mm wide, so they can be difficult to handle for young kids – they may need some help but that just means that you can join in the fun and creativity!
