Super Soakers

Free Custom Photo Calendars

Cool off without having to head to the pool! A fun way to get your kids outside without getting overheated. If you like this craft, you’ll also like our Sponge Tag Game which also uses sponges in a fun, cool way.

What You’ll Need:
*Sponges (2 per craft)
*Zip Ties

*Set some ground rules, especially if you have kids of varying ages playing, such as: Don’t throw the super soakers at anyone’s face.

*Cut each sponge in half lengthwise.

*Stack 4 pieces together and secure in the center with a zip tie.

*Head outside with a bucket of water and play some games, such as:
--Super Soaker Toss (like a water balloon toss, where you stand opposite a partner and toss it to the other, then each take a step back)
--Throwing Contest (who can throw it the furthest)
--Super Soaker Tag (the person who is "It" tags the others by hitting them with a super soaker)
--Drip, Drip, Drench (a fun twist on Duck, Duck, Goose)

*Send us a picture of your kids playing with their super soakers we may post it to our site!
