Sponge Ball Square Arms

Here's a reusable alternative to a summer favorite, the water balloon: colorful, multi-tentacled sponge balls.


For each ball:
3 plain kitchen sponges
Strong string

Time needed: 30 Minutes or Less
Sponge Ball Square Arms - Step 1 1. For each ball, you'll need 3 plain kitchen sponges fresh from the package and still slightly damp. Use scissors to cut each sponge lengthwise into 5 strips about a half-inch wide. Stack the strips as shown.
2. Loop a piece of strong string around the center of the stack and pull tightly. Double-knot the string and trim the excess.
3. For a fast cool-off game, have two players stand a few feet apart, each beside a bucket of water. See how many times they can toss the ball back and forth, taking a step apart and dunking the ball in a bucket before each throw.

Those seriously look like fun! They make me wish I had a backyard so I can invite friends over and have a water fight!
