Sponge Water Bombs

I saw these Sponge Bombs on Pinterest quite a while ago and have been meaning to make them. I just never got around to it. Well, with the hot weather here, I finally got around to making them.

I bought a few packs of the thin colourful sponges from the dollar store and Maddie and I set about making them.

To make sponge water bombs, take your thin sponges and cut each sponge into 5 even long strips. Lay the strips in 3 layers of 5-6 strips per layer. (We tried making patterns, but once they are the sponge bombs, you lose the pattern.) Take some strong thread and wrap around the centre of your sponges, pull as tight as you can, without breaking your thread, and tie in knot. Fluff the strips into a ball shape.

And there are your sponge water bombs :)

I threw the sponge water bombs in our little pool, along with some regular, thick sponges. :)

Apparently the water was very cold lol

Sammie loved trying to hit me with the bombs

The water finally warmed up a bit and Maddie was willing to get in the pool :)

After his nap, Austin got in for a little bit. He wasn’t too sure about it lol

The girls had a lot of fun playing with the sponge water bombs. :) They were chasing each other around the yard, trying to get each other wet. I wish I had gotten more pictures of them, but I was busy trying not to get wet myself lol

I can definitely see us playing with these a lot more this summer. They are a great way for the kids to cool off and get wet :)

 At A Little Tipsy, they made the sponge bombs and used mops strips and drawer liner strips, as well as sponge strips. They tied their sponge bombs with plastic cable ties, which I think would hold up better than string.
