The Mario obsession continues!

Here's what the kids (and Andy) have been working on the past couple weeks...

Mario figures crafted from perler beads.  Andy helps the kids print out an 8-bit photo of the item they want to make, then the kids look at the photo and count how many they need of each color. I love all the crafting going on at our house! Alex is the only one not really excited about this activity - well, he does enjoy throwing all the little beads all over the floor.  I did notice that they now make big perler beads, so maybe they would work well for little toddler hands.
