We were thinking ahead and realizing that Ellie will probably not have school friends at her birthday party this year (the challenge of a summer birthday and spread-out-friends-from-the-charter-school). So we decided to have a perler bead party with some school friends, just because. I limited her invite list to 5, which was hard, and then 3 came, which was perfect. I had forgotten how hard it can be to follow a pattern with perler beads, because Ellie is such a pro now. With Ellie and I helping, things went well. After the girls each made a couple of things, they happily played outside until it was time to go.
