So here we go... sponge bombs. Good clean fun.
You need a package of sponges, a pair of scissors, and some string. (I bought my package of sponges for about $2)
Cut your sponge into strips. (mine were thicker than I wanted, so I halved them again.) don't they look like carrot sticks? cute!
make a little pile of 8 sponge sticks, then tie your string tightly around the middle.
VIOLA! Sponge bombs.
Which reminds me of when I was a kid. My sister and I had summer birthdays and always wanted to have water parties. we'd have water gun and water balloon fights in the backyard, and it would kinda be a mess. But think of how much fun it would be to give each kid a package of sponges and tell them to make their own ammunition. And then send them home with all the little party kiddos as favors too. Craft project, game, cleanup, and favor all in one. How sweet would that be?
Anyway, we didn't use these for a water fight...
But they made awesome pool toys for the little man.
So what are you up to this summer? Playing any water games? Making any fun toys for/with your kiddos? Swimming and trying to stay cool? Whatever it is I hope you are having a good time!
