Download Activity Guide
Follow these helpful instructions for assembling your Blue Bead Man CleverKit!
  • Step 1This craft idea is created using our Blue Bead Man CleverKit.
  • Step 2Cut one chenille stem in half. Bend one end of each of the chenille stems to make feet and also to stop the beads from sliding off. Thread four beads on each of the stems.Cut the blue chenille stem in half. Bend 1 end of each of the chenille stems to make feet and also to stop the beads from sliding off. Thread 4 beads on each of the stems.
  • Step 3Use the large, silver round bead for the body, thread the 2 chenille stem ends up through the body bead. Once they are all the way through, bend the stems down to hold the legs in place and to make arms.
  • Step 4Next, thread 4 beads onto each arm. Trim the remaining chenille stem, leaving a tiny bit to fold over to hold the beads in place, making hands.
  • Step 5Create a hat by rolling the square piece of paper into a cone. Use tape on the inside of the cone to hold it together. Make sure the bottom opening of the cone will sit on top of the head bead. Trim off the excess paper to flatten the base of the cone.
  • Step 6Thread the silver tinsel chenille stem up through the bottom of the head bead and push it out the top of the cone.
  • Step 7Slide a small bead down the silver chenille stem so it sits on top of the hat.
  • Step 8Fold the silver chenille stem at the top of the hat down to form a loop, and push the end back into the small bead on top of the hat.
  • Step 9Thread the end of the silver chenille stem hanging out the bottom of the head bead through the body bead. Pull it down tightly between the legs and wrap it around the legs to secure. Cut off the excess chenille stem.
  • Step 10Wrap the left over silver chenille stem around the neck of the bead man to create a scarf.
  • Step 11Stick the wiggle eyes onto the head bead and draw a mouth on your Blue Bead Man with a marker to finish.
