If you aren’t familiar with tapioca balls, they are squishy, slimy, sweet balls that are used in bubble tea and other desserts. Their unique texture also makes them a great sensory experience for little ones! Creating colorful tapioca balls requires only a few materials, is safe for tasting, and is a great way to cool off on a hot day.
To create the different colors of tapioca balls, put them in cups with food coloring and water, and let them sit for a few hours so that they become vibrant. When you are ready to set the activity up, put all the different colors of tapioca balls in a large plastic bin with water and offer little ones spoons, cups, and other fun items they can use to scoop up the water.
