Water resistant items to cut up and put in your aquarium - e.g. foam craft sheets, ribbon, net, sequins, water resistant fabric, plastic packaging, shells, sand.

Adding glitter to our aquarium


Tape up the open end of the bag securely to prevent any gel escaping.

Your squidgy gel aquarium bag is now ready to play with. Have fun pressing the gel around the bag and moving the sea creatures around in the glittery gel.
