Looking for amazing, fun, educational, engaging activities for your child? These water beads are perfect! They arrive small and hard in the package but place them in water for at least 3 hours and watch the magic happen as these water-absorbing beads expand to 1000x their original size.
A tub or bowl full of these soft, squishy little “water balloons” provides a uniquely calming sensory experience for any child (especially with autism or sensory processing disorder.)
Unlike competitor versions, our beads are more durable and don't break as easily, made of 100% nontoxic, odorless polymer with no slime or stickiness. Best of all, you can dehydrate these beads back to their original size and use them again and again.
How to Use
To grow them, you simply put them into a large bowl and with water and watch them expand over the next 5 or so hours. PRO-TIP - Use warm/hot tap water for faster growth.
Once they have grown, drain away excess water and voila, you have a bowl of slippery, colourful, bouncy, ball fun!
You are limited only by your imagination when it comes to our water beads – which is what makes this product so awesome for all ages.
Children can scoop them, sort them, count them, or simply play and explore their imagination and tactile sense. Use these colorful water beads in a sensory box or over a light table.
You can even combine them with other materials (like shaving cream) to create a variety of fun sensory integration activities.
Colour sorting, water play, counting, colourful playground (in a bowl), pretend cooking, sensory play, fine motor skills, bouncing, rolling, fairy gardens, make a fairy rainbow, in the bath (remember to sieve them out before you let the plug out!)
Sensory play, treasures, bouncing, fairy gardens, dinosaur lands, colour sorting, in the bath (remember to sieve them out before letting the plug out!), great for show and tell.
I Love the feel of water beads! They are addictive to play with! In a gorgeous glass bowl on the bench, they are pretty and colourful and the feel of them is such a stress release. Dip your hand into a bowl of these and they feel amazing!
