Making Water Beads
The secret recipe for making waterbeads is this:
1 Tube of Water Beads (dry)
1 Quart of Water (wet)
Combine ingredients in a larger than 1 quart container and let rest for 6-8 hours.
Pour off excess water.
Done. That is how you go about making water beads.
Note: As the beads begin to shrink over time, you can just add water to plump them back up to size.
