Sponge Bombs

Were are in full party mode again, its that time of year! This year we are having a Splish Splash Birthday Bash, and here is our first project!

I saw this idea on Pinterest, of course, and immediately thought; alternative to water balloons so I won't have to be collecting water balloon remnants from my backyard for the rest of summer! So off to the dollar store we went and it wouldn't be a Shabby Chicks project if we didn't tweek it to our liking!!  So here we go . . .

You will need:

Two sponges (got ours from the dollar store, 2 pack/$1)
Rubber bands

Cut sponges in half . . . .

Then cut each half, in half . . .

Do this for both sponges . . .

Stack them up like this, we tried stacking each and every way (colorwise) and they pretty much end up coming out looking the same!

Take your rubber band and place it in the middle of your stack!
{This is our "tweek" on the blog we saw, they used floss and we tried that and it didn't seem sturdy enough and it required the two of us, one to hold and one to tie. We knew there had to be a better way! There was}

Keep wrapping the rubber band around and make sure it is SUPER tight! 

Twist and turn to make the sponges go in each direction and just play around with them and thats it!

Super easy and cheap alternative to water balloons!!

Thanks for stopping by . . .
