Water Beads

Have you seen these things? I have seen these crazy things a few times at the Hallmark stores and have wondered what the heck they are.  I also thought they would be fun to play with!


I decided to buy some and see how it would work.  They are non-toxic so that’s even better!  I bought four different colors to make it more eye catching!  You have to soak them in water for 12 hours before you can actually use them.  Once they were done, the kids dug right in! 



I just had out some random clear containers and utensils for them to use.  Just a fun little activity.  They say these are supposed to last up to 6 months.  But we shall see how long we use them for!  They seem to break easy.  But that’s all right, we have enough to last awhile!
