Materials Needed:

*See Note in Step 3

Let's Make Rainbow Letter Magnets:

1. Google Perler Bead letter designs. (For example, see this one.) Build your letters on your board according to the pattern.

2. Iron your Perler Beads by placing the ironing paper on top and running and hot iron over the beads. Do this for both sides.

3. Hot glue a magnet on the back of your letter.

Note: We tried hot gluing on super-strong Neodymium magnets at first.  Bad idea. They completely ripped off the plastic letters when we tested them out on our fridge. Maybe if we used crazy glue the result would have been different? We had much better success hot gluing on ceramic magnets.
