The most fun you can have for $3.99!!



Have you seen these?


I saw them right before Christmas on our local morning show...they had a florist on who was making quick & easy arrangements.  I knew we had to have them, not to arrange flowers in (although, I was a florist for many years in college & a bit beyond), but just play with!  Darling daughter got them in her Christmas stocking from Santa.  I'm telling you we've had more fun with these little beads...

so much fun that we had to go back & get a baggie of "aqua only" yesterday!

You pick a container, fill it with water & start dropping in the beads (which are about the size of a seed bead), then wait 24 hours & they're all puffed up!  They are like rubber bouncy balls!!  Darling & I have made several vases full of them...














If you have kids that do NOT put things in their mouth, go grab a bag... seriously fun & pretty!!  I got ours at JoAnne's... I'm sure they are available other places that carry floristy type stuff.  If you're like me & get distracted by foil, you'll love the sparkly quality of these so much, you may find yourself staring off into space thinking of glitter & dreaming of ponies with pink hair... have fun!
