Here’s the perfect water balloon activity for smaller kids who aren’t ready for a good old-fashioned water balloon fight!
Something I didn’t know until now: in order to fill water balloons, you need a special nozzle that attaches only to an outside spigot – our indoor sink didn’t work for this one! That meant we had to wait until a day at the relatives’ house to have fun.
Fill up water balloons and tie off.
Cut long rubber bands open, and tie one to each balloon. Now they bounce up and down like yo-yos for endless enjoyment.
These were Travis’s first water balloons, and he loved how squishy they are.
And of course, pelting daddy with a surprise handful is still fun, once the elastics slip off!
