To kickoff the Summer, the EtsyMom team is having a summer fun tutorial event. We would love to hear what you create with your kids to help keep the "I'm Bored's" away! Please send us your tutorial and images to CreateMyCreature@gmail.com by July 12th. We will be sharing them in July (or longer if we get a lot!) Here is an example of what we are looking for.
Sponge Bombs are a cheap, fast and incredibly fun craft you can make with your kids to beat the hot summer days! All you need are sponges and rubber bands.
First cut your sponges into strips, they can be as thick as you want but if they are too thin they will rip. Second just stack them up and tie a band around the middle. There is no need to try and do anything too fancy when you are tying them. Once they are tied just spread the stacks by twisting the strips apart. That's it! Just a few sponges makes quite a few sponge bombs. Now grab a bucket and have some soaking wet fun!
