You've probably seen water beads on blog or pinterest. I've noticed them all over and have been wanting to try them, but not wanting to spend a lot of money.
I recently found these Purple Water Pearls on amazon.com for only $2.90 with free shipping right to my door. (They are also available in clear and blue.) The package came with 6 little packets of water bead. We've only use half of them so far.
My children (and myself) love the feel of squishing these beads and sliding our hands through them. These water beads have been well worth the less than three dollars I spent on them!
