Sponge Balls For Bath Time

We first saw Betz White's Sponge Balls this summer, and thought they made a great substitute for water balloons for the kids (but we never got around to actually making them!). But we took another look at them recently, and thought they would make excellent bath toys!

All you need to do is to take two new regular sponges and cut them each lengthwise into 4 equal pieces. Next, lay them on top of each other. Then take a piece of dental floss and ties them together in the middle tightly. Fluff out the segments and you have a fun water toy - no matter what the weather!Of course, little Charlie didn't want to wait until bath time, and thought they were fun just to stuff into his bike...
Pin It!


  1. Very cute! We made them over the summer while we were camping. They had them in Family Fun magazine.

  2. I used to make these every summer when my kids were younger, they loved them!

  3. apparently I am the only one that hasn't seen this! I love it!
    We have a fun event starting tomorrow that you might be interested in, it is on our Crafty Kids Corner segment and will involve reusing things to make crafts...or something like that! Hope to see you there!

  4. I love it - water balloons for the latex allergic people :)
