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 one INDIVIDUAL COLOUR of water beads (approximately 500 beads)
Packaged in a recyclable soft plastic bag
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.
Once they have grown, drain away excess water and voila, you have a bowl of slippery, colourful, bouncy, ball fun!
