So the new thing for the kids is Perler Beads. I know they're not new to the rest of the world, but over the last couple of months, ours have gone nuts for them. Ezra, in particular, will scour Google images looking for perler bead patterns of planes, space ships, Marvel characters and all sorts of random stuff. Then he and Gabe will sit for hours making them.

Just a couple of the Marvel guys Ezra has done.
My only complaint is the sheer number of the things I have to spend time ironing! But, at least they're being creative, right?
