1. Download the Football Mania Project Pattern. Assemble TWO large square pegboards as shown on the project pattern to create the field. Cut out the individual halves of the chart and tape them together so that you can see the whole design at once. To create the other pieces, you will only need to use one pegboard at a time. If you’re using clear pegboards, slide the actual-size pattern underneath them. Now place all the beads for your project.

2. Cover the completed design with the ironing paper. Keeping the iron level, gently iron the beads in a circular motion for about 10 seconds to fuse the beads evenly. Ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. On a 3-D project such as this, DO NOT OVER-IRON the beads as it will make the centers of the beads close and can make assembly difficult. Warning: Parents—the ironing must be done by an adult only. Some irons may emit steam. Please keep children at a safe distance.

3. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Lift your design from the pegboard; flip the design over and repeat step #2. Your pegboard and ironing paper are reusable.

4. Assembly: Insert the football players’ feet into the slots in the field.

5. Align the field goal post with the base segment to create a foot. Set the assembled field goal post in the end zone on the field, add the football, and toss the coin to start the game!
