No Nasties water beads are non-toxic, easy to use and encourage children to learn through sensory play and hand-eye coordination.
They are teeny tiny little beads, about the size of a poppy seed before they are soaked in water after which they grow approximately 150 times their original size.
This packet contains 10g of water beads (approximately 500 beads)
To grow them, you simply put them into a large bowl and cover with 5 cups of water and watch them expand over the next 5 or so hours. PRO-TIP - Use warm/hot tap water for faster growth.
One they have grown, drain away excess water and voila, you have a bowl of slippery, colourful, bouncy, ball fun!
Do not ingest
Not for children under 3 years old.
Keep unexpanded water beads away from children under 6 years as they present an ingestion hazard.
Do not dispose of water beads down the drain, simply place them in the garden. These water beads are biodegradable so simply put them in the garden and cover with some soil - do not place in fish tank or waterways.
