Water Bead Smashing

I still had so many water beads I had to come up with another activity to use them in. Thus, the water bead smashing activity was born!!!!

We went to the yard for this activity. Used chalk to draw some numbers on the gate. These were our targets. I would call out the numbers and Caleb would hit them with the water beads. You can do variations of this – letters, sum, difference, etc.

He even drew his own number to hit.

Balancing and throwing at the same time.

Caleb had so much fun and it was easy to clean up.

We hosed down the gate.

And swept the smashed beads into the gutter.
