"Water Beads" and light
Ak first discovered these water beads. She had used them in her classroom before and recently spotted them in stores. Please see her original post on them.
A water bead is a water-retaining polymer. You can learn more about them here. www.waterbeads.net I decided to do a search on Polymers instead of water beads and had a much better result. For those of you still having a hard time finding them, I think that would be a better search for you.
Not only are these fun to play with just on their own but we've been having a TON of fun with them on the light box. :-)
After doing a search on Polymers I found these "Block polymers" from no other than my favorite store.... Discount School Supply. LOVE them! I added them to our products we love which you can see here.
They didn't quite take block form yet. We just got them today and I told my daughter she could play with them before she went to bed. Will update tomorrow after they "grow" a little more.
