Ak first discovered these water beads. She had used them in her classroom before and recently spotted them in stores. Please see her original post on them.
A water bead is a water-retaining polymer. You can learn more about them here. www.waterbeads.net I decided to do a search on Polymers instead of water beads and had a much better result. For those of you still having a hard time finding them, I think that would be a better search for you.
Not only are these fun to play with just on their own but we’ve been having a TON of fun with them on the light box. :-)
After doing a search on Polymers I found these “Block polymers” from no other than my favorite store…. Discount School Supply. LOVE them! I added them to our products we love which you can see here.
They didn’t quite take block form yet. We just got them today and I told my daughter she could play with them before she went to bed. Will update tomorrow after they “grow” a little more.
