Sponge Soaker Balls are an easy and FUN DIY Kids Craft that is great for beating the Summer Heat! This is one of those crafts that supplies are easily found, are great for hand/eye coordination and is a great way to get your kids excited to unplug and go outside and play! I mean what better way for siblings to play together then to throw Sponge Soaker Balls at each other!
I don’t know what the humidity is like where you live, but in the Midwest there are days when it feels like a sauna outside! So I’m always on the lookout for kid friendly DIY crafts that are both fun and involve water! That way the kids get the best of both worlds; being outside AND playing in the water! It’s a win-win!
These Sponge Soaker Balls go together easily and will be a hit with your kids this Summer!
Now before we get to what supplies are needed, my tip is get prepare the needed supplies a few days before you are thinking of doing this craft! We all know how crazy Summer time is and the thought of dragging the kids to the store, only to find out that the store is OUT of what you need is soooo frustrating! That means dragging them to another store! Sometimes there just isn’t time in a day to deal with that! That is why I am loving our new Amazon Prime membership! Things can be here within two days! In some cases we’ve had stuff show up the NEXT day depending on where the seller’s warehouse is located! Amazon Prime just makes life so much easier! No loading up the kids, dealing with the crowds and hearing, “she’s touching me”, “MOM tell him to stop”, “MOM are we done?”, “MOM I spilled my water”, “MOM close the window it’s messing up my hair”, “MOOOOOOMMMMM!” I know you can relate! That’s why if you don’t have Prime yet, you really should consider it! Did you know that you can try Prime for free for 30 days???

Directions for Sponge Soaker Balls:

Take four sponge pieces and lay them side by side and stack four more directly on top of them.

Dip in buckets of water and have a great water fight!
