Go colour crazy!

Water Beads are made from a super absorbent polymer which expands to over 100 times its original size when added to water!

Children can learn important hand-eye coordination skills from playing with objects of differentย textures, especially these squishy beads that move and appear to take on colour from objects around them.

There are so many fun ways to play with these colourfulย delights (we have almost every colour to choose from)!


  • Small: 10g (makes approx. 1L)
  • Medium: 20g (makes approx. 2L)
  • Large: 30g (makes approx. 3L)

Some fun ideas:

  • Use in sensory play set ups and small worlds
  • Mix up 2 or 3 colours and see who can separate them into single colour bowls the fastest.
  • Drop some small objects like tumbled stones or coins under water beads and try to find them all.
  • Glow sticks under beads look magical and keep kids entertained for ages!
  • Bounce them off different surfaces.
  • Add some watercolour paints and roll the beads across a canvas for an interesting effect.
  • Hold up a bead and look through in amazement as the world turns upside down.
  • Watch the first phase of expanding as they take on a unique rippled 'brain' shape for a short time.


  1. Soak the contents of one pack in 1 litre of clean water for 6-8 hours.
  2. Drainย & discard excess water.
  3. Washย once a week to keep clean -ย use a small amount ofย hand sanitiser.
  4. Soak in water to rehydrate when they shrink considerably.
  5. Toย optimise the life of your water beads, do not allow them to completely dry and make sure your hands are clean when playing with them.
  6. Dispose of unwanted water beads by bagging them up for your green bin or breaking them down into a mush and spread throughout the compost or garden.
