In keeping with the Olympic theme, we pulled out our water beads and made our own "Olympic rings".
Water beads are just cool. Plain and simple.
If you've never played around with them, you should totally give them a try. You can find them in any craft store in the floral section. They come in little tiny bags and start out as little tiny beads. As they absorb water, they expand, and make super fun and bouncy play toys.
Once our water beads had absorbed all of the water, we put them into an empty egg carton to play with. We tried to put the beads side by side to make the Olympic rings, but they just kept rolling away. Lots of giggles though!!
Anna loves to run her fingers through them, sort them and just play around with them.
Drew....well...he loves to throw them and watch them bounce. And he gets such a kick out of them that I just don't have the heart to take them away. He's just too cute.
