Fuse beads are not only fun to do, but they provide children an opportunity to be creative while practising manual dexterity, counting, sorting and planning skills. And a finished fuse bead design can be used as a decoration, a badge or other piece of jewellery, a fridge magnet, a bookmark - the possibilities are endless!
