Looking for a fun way to cool off this summer. Have a Summer Water War with these DIY Sponge Bombs! These are a blast with or without a pool and guaranteed to ward off the summer heat and summer doldrums!
- large tub or bucket
- small elastic rubber bands
- sponges- a LOT (about 40 pictured) varied colors
Cut the sponges in half, and then half again. You should be able to get four pieces out of every sponge.
Take 6 pieces and wrap a rubber band around them three times.
Once you are done, they are ready for the pool or a cool tub of water to soak. You can adapt games anyway you see fit for your tribe. Little ones are happy just playing with the sponges in the tub. Older kids might enjoy taking turns throwing at targets. One water war rule for any game: No throwing at faces! You can include rules to say no throwing at mom and dad, but where is the fun in that?
