Sponge Ball

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.

easy bubble blower! The kids loved it! There was a "fight" over a larger water bottle until the kids discovered you can make longer bubble "tails" with a smaller bottle (requires less air to blow).
