My two kiddos love to play with water beads. I'm not a big fan because it seems like I chase those little beads around the house the whole time they are playing with them. They are quite bouncy.....
So one afternoon I decided we would try to paint with them instead of just pouring, scooping, etc.
And it turned out super fun.
It's kinda like marble painting, but better because the water beads bounce all around the paper. They seem to move a little easier when covered in paint than the marbles do.
Anna really enjoyed it....and Drew enjoyed making a mess, so it was a win-win for us!!
You don't need much paint at all....just a few squirts. The water from the beads makes the paint the perfect consistency.
I put paper in these shallow plastic containers and they were great for little hands to hold.
See....Drew enjoys just squishing the water beads and making a mess.
It was fun....and a new way to enjoy water beads!!
