Water Beads and Eyeballs

examples of crystal soil colors

  Ewwww they feel like eyeballs! 
And indeed they do. 
Daddy Bowerbird is not keen.
"Have you felt you own eyeball?' asks the Big Bowerbird suspiciously.
"Yes, when their is something in there, or even just out of curiosity", I reply.

Bouncy bright coloured peepers to squeeze and delve your fingers through. Eyeballs that like to escape and roll across the floor, sometime whole bowls full of eyeballs running amock. Eyeballs that grow, that start off tiny, then become lumpy, and finally are perfect slippery spheres. Eyeballs you can break into tiny parts. Peepers you can add to the garden when the fun is over, or you can dry out to play with again another time. Eye balls that last and keep coming out for more experiments. Eyeballs that glow when the sun shines through them. Eyeballs to arrange in artistic patterns, eyeball traffic lights.

I ordered these online.  All the kids loved them. They'd make great stocking fillers or an alternative Halloween gift (or eyeball prank).

I think you get the idea (pun intended)
Have you ever felt an eyeball?
