Water Beads – A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

I purchased the water beads on Amazon. Buy more than you think you’ll need for one activity. Storage bin is from Target. I added silicone cups, a measuring cup, a tablespoon, sea creatures and even had fun with a garlic press. Add water, watch and wait about 8 hours for the beads to expand into the gel goodness. Have a blast! Xx, Marnie

    What a fun sensory bin. Are these non toxic? I mean, obviously you would watch little ones when they are playing, but are the beads okay on the skin?

    • Yes! Of course! They are wonderful, don’t absorb into the skin, etc. I mean, if your child ate handfuls, he might have a stomach ache so I don’t recommend eating any…

      Thanks for visiting! :-)
