Looking for educational, engaging activities —grab a pack of Sensory Water Beads! These beads arrive small and hard in the package. But place them in water for at least 3 hours and watch the magic happen as these water-absorbing beads expand to 1000x THEIR ORIGINAL SIZE! A tub or bowl full of these soft, squishy marble-sized “water balloons” provides a uniquely calming sensory experience. Scoop them, sort them, count them, or simply play and explore their imagination and tactile sense. Use these clear water beads in a sensory box or over a light table. You can even combine them with other materials (like shaving cream) to create a variety of fun sensory integration activities.
