Having a good handle on our own visual sensory system is an important concept to learn for a child. It’s how we visually take in information from our surroundings and determine if something is safe, harmful, or even important based off what we see.

It sounds like a very basic concept that you probably don’t even give a second thought to. But for some children, they have a hard time regulating their visual sensory system since they are either over or under responsive to receiving information from their surroundings.

This is where activities like the water beads sensory pool can be helpful, as it helps kids with this concept. With this activity, you use both clear and colored beads so that some can be seen under the water, whereas others can only be felt by touch.

Setting up your water beads sensory pool

Getting your sensory pool all set up and ready to play is pretty easy, as it only took us 5-10 minutes and the kids had a blast! We recently spent a lot of time in the pool after our AC broke and we had some time before the repairman could come out.

Simply fill up your pool as you normally would for some swim time, and add your beads to the pool. It’s so fun to play in the pool with these slippery slimy beads! The clear ones are especially hard to find but we have fun trying to track them down.
