Number stickers for buckets
Start by getting the sponges wet, then squeezing out as much water as you can. This makes them much easier to cut and work with. You will need 2 sponges per sponge bomb. Cut each sponge lengthwise into 4 strips.
Measure out 12 inches of twine.
Lay 4 sponge strips across the twine. Stack 4 more sponge strips on top of the first 4.
Bring the twine up and tie it in a tight knot in the center of the sponge strips. This will make the sponges all come together to form a ball shape.
Trim off the excess twine.
Drop into a large bucket of water.
Toss to each other or at each other!
To Play the Sponge Toss Water Game
Place one large bucket on the ground. Fill it with water and sponge bombs.
Line up four buckets to toss the sponges into. The object is to toss the sponge bombs into each bucket without missing. The farther away the bucket, the more challenging the game.
Expert Tips & FAQs
Make as many sponge bombs as you like. We suggest making at least two in order for kids to play the sponge toss water game.
Be sure you and the kids are dressed in swim suits, because you are going to get wet!
You may see other tutorials suggesting you use zip ties. I do not recommend that as the zip ties are hard and the cut ends will be sharp and can hurt. Twine is much safer!
