No Nasties water beads are non-toxic, easy to use and encourage children to learn through sensory play, using hand-eye coordination - they are "slippery little suckers!" They feel really weird, cold and slippery. Tactile and strangely addictive.
The teeny tiny little beads, are about the size of a poppy seed before they are soaked in water after which they grow approximately 150 times their original size.
To grow them, you simply put them into a large bowl and cover with 5 cups of water and watch them expand over the next 5 or so hours. PRO-TIP - Use warm/hot tap water for faster growth.
One they have grown, drain away excess water and voila, you have a bowl of slippery, colourful, bouncy, ball fun!
Each pack includes
10g of water beads (approximately 500 beads) packaged in a recyclable soft plastic bag and a recyclable cardboard box. Comes with an instruction sheet.
