You will need (per bomb)

  • 3 Kitchen Sponges
  • Marker
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

How to Make sponge water bombs

  1. Using the ruler, mark 3cm widths to make your sponge strips.
  2. Cut up your sponges.
  3. Stack your sponge strips three high and three wide (making sure to mix the colours for multi-coloured bombs).
  4. Wrap your string around the middle of your sponge stack, making sure it’s as centred as possible.
  5. Tie your string into a very tight knot, you may want to double or triple knot for extra security.
  6. Move the sponge strips around so they look more like a pompom.
  7. Cut off the ends of the string. These water bombs are now ready for fun water play!
