My kids love these! I got this idea from Homemade Mamas and I just HAD to make them for my kids! They are so super easy and make bath time so much more fun. We can’t wait for summer so we can take them to the pool!! They are a great alternative to water balloons – easy to fill, no rubber trash to clean up, reusable…
Okay, so here’s how to make these fun water bombs… Buy a package of sponges. I bought a 6-pack of sponges and two 4-packs. I wanted a variety of colors. Cut each sponge lengthwise into 4 strips.
Arrange whatever pattern you want. You need two layers four sponge strips wide (so eight strips total).
Tie dental floss around the middle of the sponges and pull tightly. I doubled-up the dental floss because it kept breaking. Make sure to get it tight!
Tie several knots and then wrap the floss around a second time and tie several knots again. We don’t want these breaking apart!
To store I purchased a mesh pull-string bag. I just hang it up in the shower or with our pool toys. They dry quickly and easily in the bag. Also good to know: You can wash these in the washing machine! Just let them air dry.
