Sensory Kid: Water Beads

I’m going to do a short little series here over the next couple weeks on sensory activities for your kiddo. I’m always looking for new activities to do with Addie, so I thought I might as well share them here. This first idea I got from a twitter friend of mine, Shervin at Kayden Lane. Go say hello to her!

These are Water Beads. You can find them at a local craft store in the floral department. They cost about $5. They are these little water-absorbing beads that you can use with fresh flowers. Well, they are the coolest sensory activity too! Addie and I really enjoy playing with them. I always put them in a bowl and then put the bowl on a towel in case we spill them.

So fun, right?
What sensory activities do you like to do with your kiddo?
