Please make sure you child is old enough to use these and does not put items in their mouth. I would not suggest this for kids under 3. You know your own child best. This activity should be done under constant adult supervision.
What you need: water, water beads (or water gems), and bin.
We pour out the beads in the bin.
Then we added water. Yes the water color was purple. Which did not do well for watching the gems grow!
We drained out the color and added water again.
The girls would play with them for a while and the water would almost be all gone. Then we would add more water. This went on for a long time. They spent three hours playing with the water beads.
Their favorite activity to do was to pour the beads while standing. Yes they did roll all over the floor as well!
Have you played with water beads?
