Sponge Water Bombs

 My blogger friend at Ramblings of a Christian Mom  made these same sponge bombs a couple weeks ago and it made me want to do it too.  :) 

After you tie them get some water and get outside  to have an awesome fun time.  Some of the bombs I used 3, 6, and 8 sponge pieces.  :) The variety was nice to have.  The smaller one worked much better for my 15month old.  :) 

We have had a constant heat wave this summer so finding new ways to get wet have been a hit with my kids!  :)  What are you doing to stay cool this summer?  

These are very simple to make, it only takes 3 steps. 
Step one: Buy sponges
Step two: Cut sponges in long strips
Step three: Line them up and tie them with yarn, fishing line, or even floss.  I used yarn. 


What a fun idea! I've never seen these before. Newest follower, stopping by from Sassy Shopper Reviews. We have a great Sweet Pea Maternity gift card giveaway going on if you're interested. :)

You can use a zip tie and they will last much longer than a tie of string or something. These are great!

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
