These beads are made of a polymer that can absorb 300 times their own weight in water. It is exciting to watch them grow and to investigate what happens if you take them out of water.
Fully grown, you may use them as decoration or for watering plants while you are away.
They may also be used as a magnifying glass teaching you some important fact about how light travels through different mediums.
If you put a little seed inside a bead, you may follow closely how a sprout escapes and starts to grow.
More details will be found in the activity sheet that follows the product.
