Make homemade Water Bombs for an inexpensive way kids can have fun this summer. As kids play, they can cool down with a splash or play with friends and have a water bomb war!

You can’t have summer without playing with water which is why we love our latest DIY project, Homemade Water Bombs! They are super simple and cheap to make and the best part is they are a reusable way for kids to cool down with a splash and you don’t have to constantly fill them up or pick up broken pieces when the fun is done so you can put the water balloons away, and get ready for some summer fun!

I can’t believe we didn’t make these before! They took all of maybe 10 minutes to make and all I had to do was grab some sponges and yarn out of the closet and we were ready to play! My kids LOVED throwing their Water Bombs around. Not only did they get splashed a lot, they didn’t get hurt at all by getting hit by them (which can happen with water balloons). They discovered one of their favorite things to do with them is fill them up with water and bounce them around on our trampoline. When they are done playing with them we set them out to dry so they can stay fresh for the next time we are ready to play!

DIRECTIONS

Cut the sponges longways into strips. I used a gel pen to draw lines 3/4 of an inch apart on the sponge. I got 4 strips out of each sponge.

Use some yarn to tie sponge strips together in the middle. I put 6 strips into each bomb.
