Versatile Bio gel!

Kids learn a lot buy experimenting things, touching it.  When Lucas was 4 months old, we went to Brazil for a vacation and my mother in law had a vase with those funny little balls. She let him play with it, and he loved it. He loved to touch it, step on it; so my father in law got me some to bring with me.
Today I decided to make some with him. This is how it looks like when you buy it.

The only thing we need to do is put it in a bowl with water and wait, wait, and wait.

How do you thing the waiting part went with a 17 months old??? LOL Well, after telling him hundreds of time that we needed to wait and come back later to see what is going to happen, he finally let it go.

After a few hours we went back to check it and the magic had happened. Lucas played with it, smashed a bunch of them, stepped in a few others, tried to eat some, but I was right there to make sure he would not do it, LOL.

It does feel good to touch it, and play with it. After hours of having fun, we ended up using those funny balls to decorate a vase.
