With it being SO crazy hot in most of the country right now, (seriously, I can’t believe that it’s been hotter in many places than it has been here in Phoenix!) water play is almost a MUST if you’re going to be outside. And, these DIY splash balls are perfect for playing in the water! They’re inexpensive, easy to make, and PERFECT for summer play! We actually learned about this fun little craft at Chick-fil-A a few weeks ago during one of their themed family nights! ! knew they would be perfect for our summer fun playdate, so I headed off to get supplies. I was SO pleased to find all of the supplies I needed at Dollar Tree–this one is not only super easy, but super inexpensive–a true dollar store craft!
DIY Splash Balls
Here’s what you need:
Sponges, zip ties, and scissors! That’s it! I found 10 packs of colored synthetic sponges and 2 packs of colored cellulose sponges, so decided to do a mix. Then, there were packages of colored zip ties that almost perfectly matched the synthetic sponges. Perfect! The amount I got was enough to do at least 8 balls (making them less than $1/ball)
