No nasties water beads are non-toxic, easy to use and encourage children to learn through sensory play, using hand-eye coordination - they are "slippery little suckers!"
They are teeny tiny little beads, about the size of a poppy seed before they are soaked in water after which they grow approximately 150 times their original size. What's included 10g of water beads (approximately 500 beads)
How to use To grow them, you simply put them into a large bowl, cover with 5 cups of 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 colourful, bouncy, ball fun! Colour sorting, water play, counting, colourful playground (in a bowl), pretend cooking, sensory play, fine motor skills. (Not for use under 3)
