These beads are slightly sticky to the touch, but don’t leave you with sticky hands. They can be squished and moulded together to make any shape you like. They don’t dry out and can be re-used as many times as you like. I have used this with very young children. My youngest did eat some, which made very strange colourful nappies- but no harm done!
The older children will be able to make models, but for younger ones, it makes a lovely sensory activity. Just put some in each hand and let them squish away!
