Water Fight!! – Monday Made

Standard

“While we’re young and beautiful, living free and easy. Here without a worry, dancing in our bare feet because when the summer’s done we might not be so young and beautiful.”~Unknown

We celebrated Christmas with our friend-families on Boxing day. Gifts aren’t a big thing but this year there was a candidate for Best Australian Christmas Gift……water bombs.

Probably not relevant in the Northern hemisphere since it is winter in December, but here in Oz, it can be stinking hot during the festive season. This gift filled our afternoon with active fun in the backyard, cooled down its participants, entertained the onlookers and tired out the kids.

It was, unsurprisingly (well, to me, anyhow) a bit of craftspiration (I declare that a word, now) found on Pinterest by our friend. She whipped up these little gems using kitchen sponges and fishing wire. Amazing.

You can find the instructions for them here.
