How To Make A Jumbo Water Bead Balloon

 

Materials:

  • A large balloon
  • Water
  • Water beads (Orbeez)
  • Funnel
  • Optional – Hand sanitizer

 

Instructions:

  1. Use the funnel and add about 1/4 cup of water beads to the large balloon.
  2. Still using the funnel, add about a gallon of water to the large balloon.
  3. Optional – add a squirt or two of hand sanitizer to the balloon. This will help reduce the chance of the water getting moldy after several days. 
  4. Tie your jumbo water bead balloon and let the water beads absorb the water over night.
  5. Enjoy playing with your jumbo water bead balloon!

How it Works:

The water beads are a super absorbent polymer and as they absorb the water they grow and expand in the balloon. 

Make This A Science Project:

What happens if you double or triple the amount of water beads? What happens if you use a liquid other than water? What happens if you use a smaller balloon?
