Water beads a non-edible bead made of a combination of water and a water-absorbing polymer. A polymer is made of of tiny particles that stick together and form long chains. When dry water beads are immersed in water, they fill up and expand like a sponge. They made a great filler for sensory bins, a very relaxing and fun activity for children of all ages.
Please note that Waterbeads are made mainly of water so they will break up when squeezed. You can start with 5-10 Waterbeads so children can get used to their shape and texture and squeeze them (they love to do that). As they get familiar with Waterbeads, they will enjoy playing with them more before squeezing them, but that’s all part of the sensory experience that these fun Waterbeads provide, as well as some basic STEM concepts for children.
This pack includes 100 large water beads. They are tiny balls of polymer that will grow withing a few hours / days when left soaking in water. They are suitable for children 3+ and non toxic but also NOT EDIBLE.
