We have been having so much fun with water beads! We played with the clear ones for a few days, then decided to see if we could dye them pretty colors.
We just separated them into different cups and poured a food coloring and water mixture into each one.
We let them sit overnight, dumped out the water and they turned out gorgeous!
I am so fascinated by these things. When they get smashed they totally look like broken glass!
Here's what the colored ones look like in water.
After they soak in water for a while the color comes out...and then you can dye them all over again! I love these things!
