Fall Painting with Water Beads

It was nearing the end of our playing with water beads time. So I decided instead of marble painting we would do water beads!

This was a great projects and lots of fun. The girls liked it we did several paintings over a few days. I love that every picture turned out very different.

What you need: bin, water beads, tape, paper and paint.

The girls put the paint on the paper. The first attempt they put to much paint and we learned what was a better amount of paint the next few times. You can see the different fun they had with all the colors options. Each color set worked out differently.
