Edible water beads

Ive wanted to do this forever but for over a year now every time I place an order on Amazon I forget to add these large tapioca pearls to my shopping cart! Well, I finally remembered and couldn’t be more excited! I’m overall happy with the ones that I got but I would like to look for larger pearls next time. These are considerably bigger than what you’ll find in grocery stores here but not as big as I was hoping for. Either way these are pretty simple. 


  • Large tapioca pearls I used

Hoosier Hill Farm Large 40 Tapioca Pearls, 5 lbs.

  • food coloring 

Wilton 601-5580 1/2-Ounce Certified-Kosher Icing Colors, Set of 12

And water 

So I just put them into a Tupperware container and filled it with water. I let them soak for two hours. 

After that I separated them out and added food coloring to the bowls.

After awhile I rinse each color and add to our sensory bin 

I added some little containers for them to gather them in and let them go to town! 

They love it! ❤️
