I love finding new products for my daughter to play with. I love it even more when it  is something that we have never seen before and something that is really fun! Recently, we came across Aquabeads. What are these beads I speak of? The concept is REALLY neat. Aquabeads are are fun and safe product for children. They are little water- soluble beads that your child can place on the tray with the bead pen, spray with water and the beads will dry into place and stay! We received the Starter Set and a FunPack.  Let us show you!
  The Started Set comes with over 800 beads, a convenient spray bottle, bead case, layout tray with base, 5 design templates, bead pen and instructions.
Lydia caught on quick when it came to making what she wanted to make. She chose a Fairy first. Because that night she had lost a tooth and the tooth fairy would be coming.
 She poured the packs of beads in her tray and chose her template. She added it on the base and covered it with the layout tray. As you can see, the bead pen is easy to use because you push the little button to grab and push it again to let them go.
 She was having fun!
 It took her about 10 minutes to get to this point. Only because she kept dropping beads and having to run after them. She eventually got the hang of it.
 After she finished she sprayed and let it sit overnight! See how cute?
She also received the Aquabeads Jewel Bead Fun Pack! It came with 300 beads, 4 mini templates, mini layout tray, mini bead case and mini spray bottle.
 At first, she chose to make a design that was in the  instruction book. I think its just too cute!
The Aquabeads are so much fun and she can play for hours! Check out what she has made so far! I am so proud of her!
Not only do they have templates in the sets but you can also find a ton of Aquabeads Templates on their website too! Now are you worried about what happens if the kiddos put them in their mouths? They added a bittering agent to the beads, so that if a child were to place them in their mouth, the bittering agent would encourage them to remove the beads. Sure enough since this product is for ages 6+, a child would know better. Some tips from their website that you should know! I do recommend you wash the tray after each use. We failed to do so the first time and it resulted in sticky fingers.
-When beads do not stick properly. Spray some more water on the back of the design and leave to dry. -When the back of a bead design is not glossy. Spray some more water on the back and leave to dry. 
- If your bead design starts to bend. Place is under a heavy magazine or book.
- If wet beads stick to your fingers Wash your hands thoroughly.
 -If bead design breaks. Reassemble and spray with water
