Water Beads Sensory Tub

This is a good way to teach science. It is a very sensorial activity where the children learn transformation, water absorption, color, etc.

This are the beads in the package.

Umi really liked squishing them until they broke.

This beads are wet and dry, bouncy and colorful.  They are used in flower bases and pots instead of dirt or water for decorative purposes. And it is great for the sensory tub and sciences experiment. The beads don't absorb the water immediately it takes time so your child can see the process and how long it takes. 

This is how they look after a few days of the water starting to evaporate.  Once dried you can store them in a sandwich bag and reuse!

Rhyming Word Cards in Spanish

Umi is interested in rhyming words. So I was trying to find rhyming words cards in Spanish and I came across a website that lets you print 30 rhyming picture cards in Spanish and also there are other printables work sheets.

This website is called Colorear y aprender (click on the name and the cards will pop up in a new page).

You can print them in card stock and laminate them.

I will add picture of them when I finish making them!
