I got this idea from a friend (thanks Chris!) to make these sponge balls for the kids to play with. With as hot as it's been, I decided it would be a perfect time to make these with the kids. You need three sponges for each sponge ball. The kids liked to mix and match the colors.
Start by cutting a sponge in half and then in half again.
Line up the sponges in any pattern you want.
Gather them together like this and then use a rubber band to secure them in the middle. The result looks like this:
The kids and I had a lot of fun playing in the backyard with them. I even got in a pretty good dual with Jenna. Brody was my little helper and stole all the sponge balls from Jenna. :)
