Balloons or homemade and reusable water pumps

Hello everybody! Now what the hot days are approaching ... What better than to fight a balloon or water bomb fight? In this craft we show you a very simple and easy way to make these bombs to always have this refreshing juice on hand.

Do you want to know how you can do them?

Materials that we will need to make our homemade balloons or water pumps

  • A sponge for each bomb or balloon that we want to make. You can use traveling sponges by washing them first (they can be put in the washing machine). You can also buy them brand new but I recommend you also wash them so that they soften a bit and the impact is softer when playing. You can choose sponge packs of different colors to make the game more attractive.
  • Scissors
  • Marker

Hands on craft

  1. The first is think about the design of our water pumps or balloons. For example, I have decided to make it in the shape of a balloon. But they can also be designed as an explosion or in case of having a very chubby sponge we can make a ball shape leaving a little piece sticking out like a balloon knot or a bomb wick. There are many options!
  2. We make the drawing of our design on the sponge.

  1. We trim the excess and review so that the shape we have drawn looks good.

  1. And that's it We only have to soak the bombs in a basin of water and have good aim to soak our opponent. You can make several bombs or balloons per person and each person has a specific color or shape for their bombs.

And ready! We can already enjoy a cool game this summer. In addition, the design of the bombs can be included in the game itself and each participant can make their own.

I hope you cheer up and do this craft.
