Hey Girl Scouts! Bake a Rainbow Drink Coaster in your Oven with Pony Beads

Michelle at, Life is My Lemonade, is guest posting. Michelle is busy with her daughter's Girl Scout Troop. They are always up to some new, creative endeavor. This time they are crafting up a rainbow with Pony Beads. We've crafted with Pony Beads in the past, but we always used an iron. How fun to bake them like a cookie!  Enjoy!

Being a Girl Scout leader requires you to have craft materials on hand. After a project is finished, you have leftovers. We had a lot of leftover Pony Beads. The girls decided to do something different from swaps.  We landed on rainbow drink coasters. Scroll down to see how to make rainbow drink coasters with Pony Beads.

Beads melted in pan. Once they cool, they pop right out, 
and you can use the pan again for cooking food.
