Boggly beady fun

On a lighter note...snap together beading!
The fun never ends and the possibilities are endless!
The balls to attend and the galas that await....(sigh)
That is if you can get past the initial smell after opening the jar. The scent of fresh rubber or plastic....whatever it is, though it does wear off quickly.
And then the creating begins.
So colorful and the shapes, tantalizing!
We all were drawn right in making necklaces, bracelets, crowns and rings.
And of course they make great fake gravel for Ethan to load into his semi trailers and tractors.
I only wish I had bought a few more jars.

I would give them to everyone I know!
I don't know if they still have them at Costco, I got them there a few months ago for $8 and then over Christmas I saw them in a kids toy store for $40.
If you see them cheap snap (ha, ha) them up!
I am off to the beady ball, tootles!

Regan got those for her birthday in October and LOVES them. I sent my sister-in-law straight back to Costco for more so I could give them as Christmas presents. They're fabulous.

Wow! My kids would love those. I wish I'd seen them. Even my 12 year old would wear those rings, since all those crazy 80s colors are back in style. Thanks for sharing!! Cute pics of your kids as usual!

Wow, those are so cool! I have only seen the old fashion pop-it bead styles from the 80's! :)

What fun! They look so cool. I remember having something pretty similar when I was a kid, in the 80's. But I love all the different shapes and colours of your ones.

These beads look fabulous. Ezra would love to use them and Caroline would love to EAT them :) Thanks for stopping by the other day. We haven't had our blog long and it's certainly nothing earth-shattering. Gotta love the Costco-finds!
