Marble Race with Water Beads

Water beads has become our recent favourite. My LOs enjoy playing with their Marble Race toy. They love to see how the marbles race their way down. This time when they wanted to play with it, i gave them water beads instead of the marbles – I must say this was a hit!

We set up the marble race on a storage bin – its easy to hold the water beads. A & D set their own tracks. It was very simple and small – perfect for the water beads to race down easily. Pinching the waterbeads one at a time and dropping them was a great fine motor practice. Although they loved to dump all the water beads down the ramp and enjoyed watching it roll and pile up at the bottom.
