There are lots of posts about water beads but have you tried them yet?

If you haven’t seen them, they were traditionally used as a vase filler for centerpieces. They are awfully addicting to play with though which has made them a popular sensory object the last several years.
A little goes a long way. We buy ours on Amazon. The boys wanted to create a fun swamp so we just bought green. You don’t need a ton to make a big statement. We decided to try 1/2 TBSP first. You’ll need 5 gallons of water. It seemed like a ton of water for that few beads.
You’ll want to let it sit overnight, but once they’re ready they’ll last a while!
