|Here is a bowl of clear water beads in clear water…can you find the 5 other water beads in the photo? 🙂|
1. Soak water beads in water. This is a plan ahead activity because the package we bought said to soak for 4 hours. I was shocked the first time I read the package and had to post-pone our activity for the next day.
|Here are the 3 packages of water beads that we used.|
|Water beads starting to soak-notice how small they are.|
|4 hours later we came home to this. Ms. Tiger was shocked as was I. Look how big the water beads got.|
Look at the concentration it takes to separate the water beads into the correct bowls. She also used her fingers and found it fun to squeeze the slippery water beads.
