Please keep water beads away from young children
With their bright colours and squishy feel, water beads are especially appealing to young children. But they can be really dangerous if swallowed. That’s why we’re urging parents and early years settings to keep them away from small children.
Many accidents are a part of growing up. Children need to explore and experiment. But some children suffer the pain of serious accidents that can alter the course of their lives forever. Most of these serious accidents are completely preventable by making simple solutions or changes to routines.
