Water beads for kids? That’s right! They aren’t just for floral arrangements and decoration. They also make a great learning tool and toy, all in one. More and more preschools are finding out how they can be utilized to aid child development in a new and fun way. The most popular application is to use them in sensory tables to maximize their educational benefits.

Water beads start out small but end up being big on fun and learning. Children will be amazed at how they grow, feel and look, not to mention how they love their "squishiness". Give them just 6 hours in water and let the party begin!

A Few Fun Ideas for Your Kids

There’s no better way to learn than from experience, and water beads provide a unique method of helping kids gain basic skills. Children benefit by developing motor skills, learning science, recognizing colors and expressing creativity. Try these activities to further open your child’s world to learning:

  • Open a packet and soak them in water. The gradual transition from a tiny granule to a squishy marble will be amazing!

  • Let your child pick fully grown beads from the water and put them in a different container for each color. Color recognition will be enhanced by the unique feel of the beads.

  • Have the children make a rainbow out of the beads. You can customize the activity based on the number of colors used. Start with 3 colors and work up to a dozen for more advanced applications.

  • Spread the water beads in a sensory table. Ask children to pick out beads by color, lightly squeeze them, or count how many beads they remove.

  • Teach your kids the concept of transparency by using only clear ones in a tub of water. They will seem invisible until the children reach in to scoop some out.

Use your creativity to come up with even more fun activities for learning!

Safe For Children

Water beads are non-toxic and safe for use with children. However, adult supervision is still required and a few precautions should still be taken by parents and/or teachers when using our product around small children:

  • Our product is not to be swallowed as it has the potential to become a choking hazard. Keep the beads out of reach from small children and advise older ones not to place them in their mouths.

  • Be sure that children use hand sanitizer before touching them in a group environment. While the beads are non-toxic, they can accumulate bacteria from being handled by multiple children. A child could become sick if he/she placed its hands, or even a few beads, in the mouth after others have touched them.

  • For home use we recommend our individual packets. Preschools and other groups can take advantage of our value packed bulk bags. No matter how you purchase them, water beads are a great way to teach your children while having fun. And don’t forget that we offer FREE shipping on all orders!

About Our Water Beads

Decorative, fun, educational and so much more - water beads are many things! Initially popular as vase fillers for flower arrangements, they have become a truly versatile product that can also be used for child development, in the creation of air fresheners and as refills for commercial toy products.



Just add them to water and watch as they grow from tiny pellets to resemble glass marbles. The beads are made from polyacrylamide which allows them to absorb, store and release water to keep plants and flowers moist. This same compound is also used to control soil erosion, retain moisture in landscaping installations and manufacture diapers.


The most common application for water beads is in the creation of centerpiece arrangements for wedding receptions. They offer a great option for vase filling since they are softer and lighter than marbles or glass beads, plus they come in an array of different colors and are reusable. Arrangements can be made with a single color or with multiple ones that are mixed or layered. Our beads not only offer a decorative splash of color, but they also add functionality to centerpieces by holding flowers in place. And should your vase get knocked over you won't have to worry about water pouring all over the floor or other surfaces.


Another use that has become increasingly popular is to utilize water beads in sensory applications for preschool activities. Children learn from touching, sorting and seeing the beads in sensory tables and other ways. Exercises in color recognition, hydration and texture recognition help expand the minds of preschool students.


Our product's versatility goes even further. Rather than pay full price for air fresheners like Renuzitä Crystal Elements, you can make your own at a fraction of the cost using water beads. After hydrating the beads just stir in a capful of concentrated fragrance oil (which can be purchased at a candle supply retailer). In addition to cost savings you will benefit from an almost unlimited combination of scents and colors, plus your air freshener can be used over and over.


There are several types of water beads - colorfast/non-colorfast and translucent/opaque. Non-colorfast beads use an external dye process that results in some of the dye bleeding. While this is usually less desirable because of the potential mess, virtually any shade of color can be made using the non-colorfast method. Colorfast ones require a more complex manufacturing process, resulting in a limited number of available colors. Our company sells only colorfast products and carries the widest array of colors online. With the exception of Black and White (which are opaque), all of our colors are translucent and produce a sparkling effect when light passes through.


Come inside our store and have a look around. You'll find the highest quality products at great savings, available in a wide selection of colors and package sizes. Our top rating from the Better Business Bureau assures our customers that they can count on us for a positive shopping experience, so feel free to contact us if you have questions about water beads and how to use them.
