Sponge Bombs are my children’s new favorite water play toy. Head over to MusingsSAHM.com for my guest post tutorial on making Sponge Bombs if you haven’t made any yet. They are a great cheap, easy and fun project for a summer afternoon!
Sponge Bombs are the new water balloon; all the fun of wet and wild play, without any messy balloons to fill and no tiny pieces to pick up from the yard later. Here are 7 fun games to play at your next summer party or field day.
Sponge Bombs Bulls-Eye
Using chalk, draw a bulls-eye on the ground and see who can get the most points with 5 sponge bomb throws.
The kid in the middle gets a shower while she tries to grab the sponge bomb.
Sponge Bomb Toss
Teams start close together and toss the sponge bomb to each other, if they are successful the team takes a step farther apart. A miss means your team is out of the game. Last team still tossing wins!
Sponge Bomb Pong
Fill several sand buckets halfway with water and set them up in an inverted triangle. Each row gets assigned a point value. The person with the highest number of points after 5 throws wins.
Sponge Bomb Hot Potato
Move water from one bucket to an empty bucket. First team to fill their bucket wins!
Pass the sponge bomb down the line, but don’t touch it with your hands!!!
Not to mention, Sponge Bomb tag and dodge ball are the ultimate fun for a group of children!
