Happy Friday :: Sponge Balls
Friday, June 15, 2012
We love Fridays around here. It's the end of the (usually stressful) week, and we like to celebrate. And by celebrate, I mean doing something a little different, not a big party, just something that is fun for everyone. Sometimes we order pizza and watch a movie, sometimes we eat dinner on our balcony, or sometimes, like tonight, we have friends come over for a drink.
It's supposed to be hot, hot, hot, so I'm going to make some mojitos for the adults. And since the kids are invited too, I made them these sponge balls to play with. They are so easy to make and the kids love playing with things that make them wet. You simply take a few sponges, cut them into strips, and then tie them together with some string. I used about 9 strips for the ones that you see above. For a more detailed tutorial, view this post. They are easier to use than water balloons (just drop them in a water bucket) and there's no danger of the littler ones eating the remnants of the popped balloons.
I'm looking forward to tonight. The kids can enjoy the summer weather outside and the adults can enjoy mojitos and snacks. Who knows, maybe the water fight will be too fun to resist and we'll all join in :-).
Hope you enjoy your weekend!
