I’m listening to the wicked wind howling outside and think it’s time to stock up on a few jumbo buckets of Hama beads and hibernate. jump on to see some really cute ideas for Hama cards – a nice alternative to glitter and pom poms!
(I’ll add some Christmas templates and tree decorations over the next few days)

I have only seen the Midi size kits in O’Mahony’s and Argos.
Amazon and HamaBeads stock all sizes. I have also read that IKEA Pyssla beads and boards are compatible with Hama (€1.50 for a set of 4 shaped boards, €5.00 for a large jar of beads!!)
Maxi Beads: 10mm diameter suitable for pre-schoolers 3+
Midi Beads: 5mm diameter for age 5+
Mini Beads: 2.5mm diameter for 10+
Packs of DIY blank cards and envelopes are stocked in Silkes Stationery on Catherine Street, O’Mahony’s Bookstore, Easons and the Art & Hobby Shop in The Crescent.
