Another sensory activity with a little science thrown in for fun. Watching these expand blew our minds!
Water Beads are strange polymers that grow huge to fill a vase when water is added. I think they’re meant to water your flowers. My husband says they feel like frog eggs, but I’ve never felt frog eggs. They’re super slimy and they bounce!
The girls had a blast… but this made my normally pretty laid back self crazy! For some reason, I just couldn’t let them throw them everywhere! So I was micro-managing. Bad idea. Don’t do that… let them play
We also tossed about a liter of these in the tub. They had a ball with them. But if you do it… make sure that your drain is a smaller diameter than the beads so you don’t have to fish them all out :-p
