  3. Thank you for the continual inspiration. This is my first year in Prep. My students loved the fireworks transient art. I have wanted to use water beads for years. Sellers say that they are non toxic and ‘edible’. I was still concerned. How did you make this safe for your students?

    • I wouldn’t use water beads if any of the children were still at the ‘mouthing’ stage. I still remind them, but there has never been an issue.
      You could buy tapioca pearls instead, if you were worried about the children in your care 🙂

  4. where can i buy some of these items?

    • eBay and Amazon are always good places to start 🙂

  5. I’ve search ebay and amazon and could not find them because I do not know the name or manufacturer. Can you share the names and manufacturer of the items you use when you post those amazing items? I’m trying to find the pieces of woods with the different line in the photos that you have that are placed in bowls. I love your creativeness.

    • Oh! I think you mean the wooden eggs. I bought those in the sale at a local shop, I’m afraid, so I’m not sure if you’ll be able to fine them. Sorry! Perhaps you could just do a search for wooden eggs and see what comes up.
