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
