Sponge Ball

Game of tag on a scorching hot day, squishy sponge balls are summer's alternative to snowballs. Made from dollar store kitchen sponges that are cut up and tied together, they last longer than water balloons and are softer and splashier than regular balls.

Cool the kids off with a homemade sprinkler. Take a 2 liter soda bottle, poke holes in it. Attach to a garden hose via a male to male adapter that cost less than $5 at Lowes. Toss over a tree branch and let hang. You can adjust how the water sprinkles by adjusting the water flow.

Take a 2 liter soda bottle, poke holes in it. Attach to a garden hose. Toss over a tree branch and let hang for a kids water sprinkler. You can loop it over a tree branch and let kids bat it around for more watery fun!

Draw a target or line with sidewalk chalk.  Have your child toss the balloon as close to the center target or as close to the line as they can.  Variation:  Place an object on the ground for your child to aim at (sand-filled soda bottle, chair, bucket, you).

Paint Twister... Definitely an outside idea, but OH HOW MUCH FUN IT WOULD BE!
