These beads are fantastic for sensory play with little ones
on 3 September 2014
These beads are fantastic for sensory play with little ones, as long as they are past the mouthing stage. I can't comment how good they are for flowers, but I do know that they are the same material as the gel in moisture saving compost, and we have put the ones we have broken into our pot plants.
Leave them in water overnight and they grow to the size of marbles, but are squishy and feel lovely when swishing them around. We have used them in water, on their own, in shaving foam, with sieves and spoons and empty bottles and my daughter and her friends love them. In fact the grown ups were still swishing them around after the children had moved on to something else as they are so therapeutic! My favourite ones are the clear uncoloured ones as you can't see them at all in water and then you scoop them up and they are appear like magic!
These are a lovely range of colours and have been very successful in an ocean themed sensory bin
