It was my first time home alone with two little humans and I decided to let C grow some water beads to keep her occupied. I do not know what took me so long to get started to grow them. It’s so much fun! Thanks Sylvia! The ones we used for the horse themed sensory bin were from Daiso. They were also fun to play with but being able to grow them adds to the excitement! C was at this whole activity for about 1.5hrs and I could feed J peacefully in between.
Recipe for 1.5hrs (and more) of engagement and lots of fun: water beads, 2 containers, a scoop and lots of water! After I gathered the pails and such, I sat C down and instructed her to empty the water beads into the main container.
Half a Samla-box-ful of fun! We will definitely be using them as part of our water beads sensory plays.
P.S. Check out this Night Sensory Bottle that Sylvia put together!
