How to Grow Your Water Beads:
Simply place the beads into a container of water for 4 - 6 hours. Remember that you've got around 7000 in a packet, and they grow to many times their original size so don't put too many in at once! We recommend you use distilled water for best results, but tap water should work fine too.

Pack of 7000 REGULAR Water Beads (14 Colours Available)
The beads are really good quality, my daughter loves them. The shipping took a little while but that’s to be expected.
Easy instructions to follow & great company to deal, would definitely recommend
They are awesome and will look great using them as part of a centerpiece. I made a mistake in colour when I ordered them but the company had it sorted for me in no time, much appreciated, would definitely recommend
Blue water beads
Love these! My 5 year old had so much fun watching the beads expand and then exploring them in different ways. Just be careful with the environment, they're bouncy!

WaterBeads in Play.
The class' are loving these thank you. They are great as a tool to promote language (discussion and colour coding), science observations of what is happening with them in the water over a day, as well as fine motor skills with the use of tweezers and eyedroppers for picking up the beads and sorting them. Thank you again Natalie
