I know this idea has been floating around lots of blogs. I first saw this idea over Inner Child Fun.
Get ready for the best summer ever!
Instead of letting summer creep up on you and rush away, take some time to plan some fun activities to do with your kids this summer.
Let this be the summer where you create priceless memories together.

Sponge Balls are a FUN Summer Activities
Cut sponges in thirds or fourths lengthwise. We used cheap, colorful sponges.
Hold 8-10 strips together and twist. Then have a parent or friend put on a cable tie and trim off the excess.
Here are our colorful water bombs. Now we are ready to PLAY!
Water Princess Play
My girls (2 and 5) were not so eager to run around and toss them at each others. But that didn’t mean they didn’t want to play!
The girls loved filling them with water and squeezing it out. They are soft and have a great texture in your hands.
Later the girls and I played toss sitting on the lawn.
Goofy (8 years old) preferred to run around and try to get Mommy with them! It was actually very refreshing on this HOT day.
