Water Beads for Kids

IMAGINE YOUR KIDS HAVING THIS MUCH FUN!

Another fun thing to use: kid’s hammer for squishing the balls! It would also be fun to use an ice cube tray to sort different colors.

Here’s a picture showing how big they get comparative to their starting size. They grow to be the size of marbles! So fun.

We love water beads at our house. They are a favorite sensory activity, but water beads are actually not safe for little ones. They are used in flower arrangements and although they are nontoxic, they are not edible and a choking hazard. My kids really don’t put items in their mouths, but to be on the safe side I wanted to make water beads that were safe for my children if they did ingest them.
