Diy Sponge Ball

Do you know those water toys that you can throw at someone and they are soft and squishy and lots of fun, but sadly cost a bit too much to have many. What if I told you that you can make them yourself with the cost of couple of dollars! Presenting to you Sponge Bob Ball!

 For one ball you will need 3 sponges, I had them all different colour, but you could have just two colours or even one colour. Then you need an elastic band and scissors and that's it.

 Cut your sponges in 8 equal pieces, the easiest way to do this is to cut the sponge first in half, then that half in half and those halves in half. And that's why I have the pictures above, it makes more sense when you look at them. Once you've cut all your pieces then just put the elastic around them. Now make a few more of these and you are ready to have a good old water fight.

 Here I tried for you guys what it would look like if you used just half of the sponges. Not so good in the looks for Sponge Ball, a bit too thin, but the kids didn't mind it. This is our new favourite toy in the pool. It's so much fun to throw at each other or throwing it in the air and trying to catch it.
