  1. Looks like fun! Can’t wait to try this with my 16 month old Grandson. Have you had any problems keeping kiddos from putting them in their mouth?

    Love the red & clear together…sets the stage for Valentines:) I just want to reach into the computer and experience the sensory tube and sorting!!

    Love what you do, Teaching Mama!

      Aww thank you! You can come over anytime and play with the sensory tubs!

    2. I found out you have to hydrate colors separately. If you try to do two colors at same time they all come out same. At least that’s what happened with pink and white they all turned pink. We had fun anyway.

  3. That is so fun! I had been wondering where to get them too! Your ideas are so awesome Angela! Makes me excited to try them with Lainey now and when she gets a little older too!

      Thanks, Sarah! Yes you can find them in most floral sections of craft stores or even Walmart. They are cheap, easy and fun!

  4. Thanks for the tip! I didn’t know Dollar Tree carries them. I’ll have to make a trip, I’m seeing these everywhere on the web. Looks like they had a lot of fun. I wonder if they float in water?

      You’re welcome, Amy! Yes the Dollar Tree sells them ready-made in a bottle for $1. You can also find them at Michaels or Walmart in their floral section. I like to buy them in a pack that isn’t already made (they look like seeds) and let them soak in water overnight. You get a lot more that way! They actually don’t float. They kind of bounce around in water, but stay at the bottom. Thanks for your comment and hope you’ll try it out!
