* Glow-in-the-dark

1. Download the Glowing Aliens Project Sheet. Use the large boy pegboard  for the aliens, and use the small circle pegboard for their spaceship. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Now, place all the beads for the design.

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. 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.
