2 Packs of Rainbow Water Beads $10.00
Water beads are one of the most popular items at The Homegrown Preschooler. Why? Because water beads offer a unique sensory experience for children. Research shows that when children receive adequate sensory input, the brain hangs onto cells, rather than shedding them. This provides young learners the opportunity to think abstractly and handle more complex concepts.
Each pack of water beads makes 2 quarts of full size polymers. You can purchase our original pack, filled with rainbow water beads or our pond pack, filled with blue and green water beads. In addition to being beneficial for your child, they make the perfect present for a friend!
Warning: choking hazard- small parts. Not for children under four years of age or anyone who has a tendency to put things in their mouth. Only use water beads with direct adult supervision. Do not flush down toilet or drain.
