We stopped at the craft store this morning to grab some water beads. We managed to find the ones that were not already enlarged so A could watch that process. It was nice that it took only about 4 hours because we were able to start it before lunch and then by the time she was up from nap and snack they were ready to be played with.
A had fun scooping and pouring the water beads into different containers. We then made a couple sensory bottles (will do a separate post about those later). It was interesting how by themselves the beads were easy to see, but as soon as they were surrounded by water they disappeared! Fun times that we will definitely do again!
