1) An oven safe bowl
2) Melting beads
3) Cooking spray
You can create an amazing Bead Bowl in 6 easy steps:
Preheat bowl to 350
Spray your bowl with lots cooking spray (make sure entire bowl is covered)
Have your child pour melting beads into the oven safe bowl and push down and all around. (spread all around until entire bowl is covered)
Place your bowl on a pan in the oven for 15 minutes. For little kids you can open the conversation and ask things like : what will happen to the bowl and beads etc.
After removing your bowl from the oven you will let it completely cool before touching it directly with your hands. (you can discuss your predictions from step 4 with your child)
Once it is completely cool you can carefully peel the bead bowl off the oven proof bowl.
