Edible Water Beads ~ Growing A Jeweled Rose

All you have to do is boil water, add the tapioca pearls, stir, cover the pot, and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes.Once cooked drain the pearls and run them under cold water for several minutes. Kids can play with the pearls once they are cool, or you can add extra coloring by using food coloring; this was a tip I took from Blog Me Mom. I divided the pearls into cups, added a few drops of food coloring, and mixed.

For all the best Kid Activities

I let the colors absorb into the pearls for 5 minutes, and then I dumped the pearls back into a strainer and rinsed them under cold water for several minutes. This worked fantastically! The pearls were vibrantly colored, and NO COLOR transferred onto Rosie and Jewels hands during play!

The girls had lots of fun and played and played!

The tapioca pearls feel a lot like water beads, but they are slightly sticky. Rosie and Jewel loved the added sensory element, but if your child does not like the stickiness just add water to their play. We added water after a while, and the beads were not sticky at all with the water.

The water also made for lots of new ways to play & explore!

A Few Tips: Once we were done playing I stored the tapioca pearls in a storage container full of water in the fridge. We kept our tapioca pearls for four days before deciding to toss them, and the girls had lots of fun playing with them each day. While tapioca pearls are edible you would not want your child to sit and eat a ton of these. Rosie and Jewel tasted one and did not have any desire for more, so this really shouldn't be of concern. Please supervise very small children during play.
