As a mother of 6 I have learned to look for frugal fun out of necessity. This fun family craft will provide cool off fun for hours. Frugal and fun go in hand in hand as you travel through hours of splashing fun.
How to make it
- 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.
- Loop a piece of strong string around the center of the stack and pull tightly. Double-knot the string and trim the excess.
- 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
