Activity: Sponge Water “Balloons”

It is summer & it is hot & humid, so we need ways to stay cool. Today we headed to a BBQ & thought it would be a great time to try this activity. Sponge Water “Balloons” 🎈

Materials: (for 1 sponge)

* 1 sponge (without scrubby side)

* 1 rubber band

* Scissors


Cut the sponge (long way) into 3 strips. Wrap a rubber band around the middle of the 3 strips of sponge. Spread the sponge out. And you are done.

Dunk the sponge balls into water & throw! (Also a fun toy when they are dry & play catch with.)

*Bonus: reusable & don’t have tiny balloon pieces to pick up like with water balloons!
