Sensory balloon with water beads

This by far is one of my favorite things to make and play with now. It is so easy and pretty durable for play time with kids. All you need is a big balloon,water beads and a soda bottle. First make the water beads. I filled a bowl with water and let mines sit over night to make sure they are the biggest they can get. Once they are done fill a empty clean soda bottle little over half full with the beads. Next blow up the balloon as big as you want but make sure its not too full or it might pop at the next step.  Next place the balloon on the filled soda bottle. I found it easy to have help with this step so the balloon wont deflate, but it is possible to do it alone. Then turn over the bottle and gently pour the water beads into the balloon. Once all the beads are in tie off the balloon and done! 
This was such fun. My kids loved rolling it around and trying to bounce it. It has a really neat feeling and can withstand a lot of rough play. We still actually have it and plan on taking it outside to see if it is possible to pop it. 
note~ I did not see any but I think a clear balloon would make this even better, then it would be easier to see the colors.

For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not. We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
