Water Beads and Tubing
We first blogged about water beads back in the beginning of June, and since then - WOW - they have really taken off with parents, caregivers, and schools! AWESOME! If you haven't played with these slippery little suckers yet, you are really missing out. Its a great sensory experience for ALL ages.

Yesterday I bought some clear plastic tubing from a local hardware store ($1.40 per foot). This morning we had a ton of fun using them with water beads. The pics speak for themselves.
"Its like a roller coaster."
Putting water beads in the tubes - great for fine motor skills (and confidence, patience, resilience, etc).

I tired to get a pic of him dumping the beads.....they came out too fast.
of course, he incorporated the gutter
