Children: Projects and Crafts
Sponge Ball Water Fight: Great for a game of tag on a scorching hot day, squishy sponge balls are summer's alternative to snowballs. Made from kitchen sponges that are cut up and tied together, they last longer than water balloons and are softer and splashier than regular balls. Best of all, after tossing them around, the kids will be as clean as the kitchen dishes

Bubble Snakes. Will keep kids busy! We had great fun with this!! Also you can incorporate the end you cut off to make flower blossoms. Now, my girl did inhale the bubble solution...make sure to explain not to breathe in with the plastic bottle up to the mouth. This is a keeper activity. I was as entertained as she was!!
Homemade pet jelly fish. that's about the neatest thing EVER. I did this with my 3rd, 4th and 5th grade class. Told them to bring in a bottle and a bag. Some of the kids brought it in and the rest of the kids thought it was dumb. After we did this project, the kids who thought it was dumb, didn't think so anymore. Kids who made them, named them and love them at home now.
