Have You Tried Water Beads Yet?

Sensory play can get a bit same-y. After sand, water, shaving foam and cold spaghetti, it can feel like it's time to start the cycle again. Give this more unusual resource a try instead

Sensory play can get a bit same-y. After sand, water, shaving foam and cold spaghetti, it can feel like it's time to start the cycle again. We've come across a different resource which is cheap, easy to use, and looks fabulous.

Introducing... Water Beads! These tiny balls come in different colours, and once soaked in water they grow into marble sized spheres of fluid. They're non-toxic, and tough enough to withstand little hands exploring. Even better, if wrapped in tissue they will shrink back to their original size ready to be used again.

Whether you want an alternative sensory substance in tuff spot, or a different resource for a counting, matching or sorting activity, water beads could be a good things to try for a change! Please be risk-aware and ensure that children are well supervised if using this resource, as it does represent a choking hazard.
