Have you used water beads with your kids yet? They are so inexpensive (about a dollar for as many as you could want) and SO fun for kids! Also a great sensory experience!

    They are wonderful but make sure to get the ones made in America, not China, as the ones made in China do not have any regulations on the dye that is used in them since they are typically not used for little ones to play with. So, there are harmful dyes, especially int he red and pink ones.

    Be very careful with water beads. They are wonderful for sensory activities but they can cause serious physical complications for a child who swallows them.
