Scientific Skills: Sensory Science, Observing, Predicting, Evaporation and Absorption1.Sensory play is what water beads are best at. Kids of all ages love the feel and look of them. They are so enticing! Colorful, smooth, squishy, cool… Really, there’s not much more you need to do with water beads than have a bowl full of them to plunge your hands into and hold and squish them. Water beads seem like magic to kids because the beads start out so tiny and grow within a few hours. Just watching the beads change is a fun activity for younger kids.Use them in vases, bowls, and jars for eye appeal. They are great for centerpieces for weddings and other events. The water beads really add a wow factor that can turn ordinary vases and bowls into something beautiful. 3. Water Beads for Plants Water beads are also great to use with plants. They help plants retain water and reduce the amount of watering plants need. They release the water gradually so the plant isn't flooded with water. The water beads can also act as a replacement for soil with some plants. Bamboo plants do well with water beads rather than soil. 1 tsp dry beads will yield about 1 quart of Water beads when fully hydrated. 2. Allow the beads to fully expand in 6-8 hours. 3. Remove the expanded beads from the water and pour into vases or bowls and ready to use.

This is one of those "great" ideas I had for a fun activity for my 4 and almost 3 year old. Yay sensory fun, woo hoo non-toxic, yay look at all those pretty colors. I thought they were amazing the first time we soaked them and had fun running my fingers through this giant bowl of jiggling marbles....

Fast forward 2 days later when my kids realized they could squish them...and squish them they did. I had jelly bits from one end of my kitchen to the other, jelly in my toes, jelly on the table, jelly EVERY where. Imagine Dexter but instead of blood spatter it is little bits of jelly. This jellycidal rampage took place quickly and there were many casualties.

So yes...this is fun...but be forwarned that cleaning up jelly spatter from places, you wouldn't even dream of can be one heck of a downer. Also side bar, after spending an hour in squished jelly trying to clean these up, my hands did start to burn a bit from the sodium.

I use these in my PreK class and the children LOVE them! Perfect for a light table or sensory table. I used approx. 1 tsp in a 2x1 foot clear container, added water and they immediately began to plump up. Within a few hours they were bigger than marbles. They feel a bit slimy as you play with them, but most of the children didn't mind that. They also shrink up if you leave them for several days and you can reuse them. Fantastic learning and exploration!

So cool!! We love them

Bought these to make some stress balls. These arrived on time and packaging was O.K no issues. These are very easy to use just soak in water for 4-5 hours or overnight. I've made several stress balls with these and they have turned out good, however, I have noticed possible mold inside of the balloons after a week or so, not sure if it's a reaction with the water and balloon or if these grow moldy after a few days. But these are lots of fun to play with by themselves just for sensory fun.

I purchased these for my 20 month old son. He is very active and always jumps around from one thing to another. It is near impossible to find toys that he will sit down and play with time and time again. I put these beads in a small plastic tub and he loves them! He has been playing with it every day for several months now. These have given me some time to relax while my son will run his hands through the beads. They feel really cool. The only problem I had was they get sticky after a month or so and I have to run them under water for a few minutes to try to clean off the slime. If your kid puts thing in the mouth this is not good. They beads break if squeezed but they are slippy and they are hard to squeeze. Highly recommend.

LOVE THESE! There so tiny in the bag!! Like pin too small! Then they get as big as a quarter! The only thing I don't like is lite pressure they break in little peices. They feel amazing!! And the color is crazy when there in the water they lol blurred it's trippy

We love water beads! My kid loves to play with them. They come in a tiny package with tons of beads. Add them to water and they swell up. They grow to about the size of a marble or a little smaller. The beads are delicate, if they get squeezed, they break into a ton of tiny little jelly pieces. The only thing I can compare it to is the jelly that is inside diapers when they break open. So they do make a mess if they are squeezed and broken. We still love them and I encourage my toddler to be gentle when playing with them. The best thing is that they will shrink back down and dry out. You can put them back into the bag to reuse another time!

My Daughter is in love with these! I know they are not the brand name, but they work just as well. We left them overnight in a container and they got to a really nice size which my Daughter is happy about as they started off kind of small after the first hour or so in water.

I would just ask the manufacturer to try and tape the packaging as the ziploc type bag opened up in the box. It was not a big deal as only about 100 tiny balls fell out which I collected in a cup and put back in the package. However it could have been a problem if the whole package dumped out.

Overall very happy, and would recommend!

You dont need many of these in your planter or Design vases or even hookah or water pipes, becareful to use only a half a teaspoon in some warm water. The warm water will help the beads expand. some were also not round but foot ball shaped one even got as large as a ping pong ball :) it is a bonus that they are bio degradeable and disolve after long term expansion i am still using the same back from when i get these 2 months ago and have lost less than 50 with 3/4 of a bag still left

Like most sensory play this got messy, but three year old twins were actively involved repeatedly for extended periods for 2 days. Could have gone on longer, but Grandma got tired of chasing small balls and water spills around the kitchen. These really expand as claimed on the package, so don't doubt them like I did and had to pull out a second container. They are bright, colorful, slippery, bounce, can be weighed in a balance scale, measured, scooped and poured. Small washable toys can be buried in them. And we have enough to do it all again another day.
