I bought some water beads for Caleb to play with.
They started to grow in just a few minutes!
Caleb inspected the beads “they’re bigger momma!” Wonderful observation, son!
We soaked them overnight and they grew into these huge balls that had the feel and texture of Jello.
I let Caleb play with them and he started to squeeze them. I joined in the squeezing fun!
What a great stress reliever.
He even wanted to swim in it! Thanks for the idea, Caleb! I will put it in the tub next time!
Here’s what’s left of the water beads after playtime.
Messy, easy and fun! 😀
