Since we spend a lot of time outside and a lot of time in the water, these sponge balls are perfect for my kids, they’ll love soaking them and then tossing them back and forth, or maybe at one another. You can vary the side of these sponge balls by using bigger or smaller sponges and thicker layers. Look for rubber bands with no metal join. This way you’ll avoid both rust and the change that a hard edge might sting when it’s tossed at it’s target.
Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 5 minutes
Things to do:
1. Cut the sponges down their length into four even strips.
2. Stack three layers high and four strips wide for each sponge ball.
