Last year I made Sponge Splash balls with my kids after I saw the idea in Family Fun magazine. They were a big hit at the beach all summer long … so much so they met their well-loved (stinky, dirty) demise Labor Day weekend!
So … we repeated the project again this summer. This time I found foam sponges at the dollar store (10 for $1!). All you need to create one sponge splash ball is two regular sized sponge that you cut vertically 4 times and then tie the cut pieces together tightly with a string.
Then it is all ready to be soaked in the lake, pool, etc and to be tossed back and forth for some wet fun! (Beats filling up tons of those tiny water balloons!!!)
