The weather has been really bad this week. It’s been raining every day and it actually looks more like autumn than summer. I know, I keep ranting about the weather, I feel bad for the little ones who have been waiting the past few months for this. Anyway before the break,, I ordered some Orbeez (their like gel beans which you “grow” over night in water, after about 8 hours they become like squishy jelly like beans your kids can play with) for T to play with over the summer.
She’s been nagging me about them ever since she first saw children play with them on YouTube.
That’s what’s been keeping her busy. I bought her two packs and they came in little plastic pouches. Each night she’d choose a colour and we’d leave it soaked in water to “grow” over night. Just like in the video, she let’s her little “Elsya” and “Anya” dolls swim in them. She can spend hours just playing with them, sometimes she’ll play and watch a video of kids playing, while she herself is playing with her tub of Orbeez. She once asked if she could have a bath filled with the little beans, but I said no to that.
To be fair though, as soon as the rain would stop, T would run out and jump on her trampoline. She doesn’t spend all her time playing with Orbeez, she likes to draw and paint too. Hopefully the lovely warm sunny days will be back.
Have you heard of Orbeez?
Do your kids play with them too?
