Glass gems have been a staple in our playrooms since our children were 6 months old.  We love how one “toy” can become so many different things.  Below, you can see some ways that we have explored them.
Glass gems can be purchased at any craft store, Dollar Tree, Walmart, Target, etc.
**They present a choking hazard and should only be used with young children under close supervision.**
Most of these pictures have a blog post with more detailed information.  To see the entire post, click on the links below the pictures.
