I’ve written a few reviews of Aquabeads, and I have to admit I really like them. They’re popular with our family because they don’t make any mess! They encourage fine motor skills, and usually the children sit quietly while they make them – most of the time anyway!
E is 6, and was delighted to get the chance to review the Minion Aquabead Set. He carefully shared the beads out into the container, and filled the water bottle. Then chose which character to create first!
The Aquabeads take 10 minutes to set, and then they’re ready to peel off – using the bead peeler (or scraper as we call it!) which is included in the set.
What to do with the completed Aquabeads
We have started to use Aquabeads to help us create extra special Birthday cards for friends. We simply attach the finished creation with double sided tape to a blank greetings card – often one we have folded from a piece of card! I think an easy to make and unique Birthday card is always popular – especially when it features a favourite character.
Aquabeads are suitable for children aged 4+. The beads are flavoured very bitter so there is no temptation for younger children to put them in their mouths! Aquabeads come in a variety of designs to make, including Disney Princesses, StarWars and Finding Dory to mention a few. You can also buy refill packs of beads, so the fun doesn’t have to end when the beads run out!
Win Your Own Set!
With Christmas on the way, I think that Aquabeads would make a lovely gift. Just imagine a quiet half hour while the children are all busy making creative projects – and no mess! So, we have a Minion Play Set to give away to one lucky reader who wins this competition!
