Christmas sensory beads are the perfect holiday activity for kids! Includes a festive blend of green, red and white beads.
Large bulk pack makes 6-7 litres of water beads once hydrated, enough to fill two SensaTable bins at least 1/2 way up. Children can play with beads once they are hydrated. Add at least 1 litre of water per tablespoon of beads, and they’ll be hydrated within 3-6 hours. Sensory beads absorb water and expand to a maximum of 1-1.5cm in diameter.
Add a few drops of essential oils while hydrating to give them an amazing scent!
Use sorting cups to sort the beads by colour. Add a few beads to bathtime for a magical sensory experience. Add items to the beads and do a ‘search & find’.
Many more possibilities!
Water beads are super-absorbent polymers that last 1-2 years. You can add water to keep them hydrated, or let them dry out to their tiny original size for storage. When they’re hydrated, store them in a breathable container (not an air-tight container). They can be rinsed and cleaned using a strainer.
Used water beads can be placed in garden beds or flower pots – plants love the extra moisture! You can also use them for home-made ice packs or hot packs, flower vase decor, and a relaxing foot spa.
Salt will dissolve water beads. Water beads are environmentally safe and non-toxic, however they can pose a choking hazard. Always supervise children playing with sensory materials.
Also known as water beads, orbs, orbeez, water jellies, water crystals.
