If you have any plans or desire to have some fun water games going on at your house this summer, then these simple sponge balls are a must.
Sponge balls are so much better. Some people call them “sponge bombs”, but whatever you want to call them, they’re perfect for summer water games. They’re easy to make. They stay in one piece and can hold a lot of water. And, you can reuse them throughout the summer. Just dry them out and store them with your pool toys.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 4 basic kitchen sponges (I buy mine at Dollar Tree)
- a strong rubber band (or strong string)
Cut all of the sponges 4 even strips, length-wise
Bundle the sponge strips from all 4 sponges and wrap a rubber band around them in the center.
Fluff out the strips and arrange them so that they are nice and poofy!
And that’s it!!
Except now that you know how to make a sponge ball you should go ahead and make about a half a dozen more because your kids are going to be OBSESSED with the these.
