And you thought that unicorns didn't exist...
They are gorgeously pastel and when you look closely, they look like a little universe with speckles of mica inside.
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.
10g of water beads (approximately 500 beads)
Packaged in a recyclable soft plastic bag and a recyclable cardboard box
How to Use
To grow them, you simply put them into a large bowl and 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.
One they have grown, drain away excess water and voila, you have a bowl of slippery, colourful, bouncy, ball fun!
Littlies (not for use under 4 years)
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! Full disclaimer, 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!
Our water beads are biodegradable, simply put them in your garden when you are finished and cover with soil.
