What You Will Need:

Making Sponge Balls Water Play:

  • Cut your sponges lengthwise into 4 pieces per sponge. Make enough for 8 pieces per sponge ball.


  • Take the 4 sponge pieces and lay them side by side, then stack 4 more on top of those.


  • Next, take a piece of string and tie it around all the sponges together.


  • Now pull the string very tight and tie it in at least one knot. Cut off the excess string.


  • Twist open the individual pieces in a way that they look like the photo here.


  • Now take your finished sponge balls and dunk them in the bucket, it’s time to play!
