Glowing Water Beads
We love playing with water beads and have used them in a variety of ways. I have to say, glowing water beads are our favorite, with frozen water beads as a close second. To make the glowing water beads I first made glow water. Glow water is simple to make, and my boys even like to help. To make glow water you need yellow highlighters. I prefer to use non toxic highlighters since my kids will have their hands in the water created from the ink. As with all sensory activities we wash our hands after play.
Supplies: non toxic yellow highlighters scissors water clear water beads black light
Directions: Break open a yellow highlighter. Use caution while breaking it, because little bits of plastic can go flying. Next run water through the inside of the broken pen to get all of the yellow from inside then run the spongy part
To make glowing water beads soak clear water beads in glow water for several hours. I have made glowing water beads both from brand new water beads and from already hydrated water beads. If they soak in glow water long enough they will absorb enough of the glow water to glow.
