Summer Water Fun

We attend two different parkdays at two different parks.  Our Friday park has a creek the children love to play in when the weather gets hot.  The Tuesday park has nothing similar.  So with a heat advisory and forecast of over 90+ degrees, our choices were skip Parkday or do something to help beat the heat.

Enter sponge balls. I got the directions here.  It took us about 5 minutes total to make about 15 balls.  We brought a dishpan to hold water for reloading. After setting just a couple of ground rules (only throw at someone who says they want to play) we turned the kids loose.  They had a blast and got completed drenched.

Once soaked and tired of the game, they were able to play all their other regular games happily without overheating for several hours.
