With our temps at almost 90 in early May, I think it is safe to look for some water activities we can have a bit of fun with!  I just love how colorful these sponge bombs are!

Sponge Bomb Bucket Toss found on Inner Child Fun

Need: (All I think can be found at your local Dollar Store too!)

  • Sponges
  • Scissors
  • Zip Ties
  • Toe Nail Clippers to trim off excess Zip Ties
  • Buckets


The website did not really give much.  She did cut each sponge into thirds then used 9 strips per “Bomb”.  A reader submitted a suggestion to use toe nail clippers to cut excess zip ties. Just bunch them up (I did three rows wide & three high), and tie them up!  Add a little water and have some fun!

We had so much fun yesterday!  I had a bit of trouble find Zip Ties at my Dollar Tree so I headed over to Walmart and found them back in the hardware section.  We went with the longer clear ones which were a bit long…but the short ones would have been very hard to work with.


With the temps hitting 90 degrees this week… I did some looking around for some water fun.  I found some great ideas and wanted to make the one Simple Simon & Co but they did not have very detailed instructions at all.. So being that we are kinda handy.. We set off to Home Depot, and I am pretty happy with our results.  Colin loves it even more!  To make this fun project it only costs $8.00 or less at Home Depot (I am sure Lowe’s etc are similar).

We only used the glue on one piece so that we can easily store for next summer.  This beats buying the kid sprinklers in store that are pricey and seem to last only a summer or less!

*NOTE* I have the exact measurements for the PVC Pipe cuts… If your super friendly…Maybe you can get the associate at your Home Improvement Store to help you make those cuts (Save a bit of time and money if you do not have a saw).

Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday!!  I can not believe it is already here!  If you like me… I am stuck for ideas.. My husband says he does not want anything, but I want to do something.  Family Fun Magazine has some great ideas for dad!!
This Car Wash bucket would be great for any dad:
-Get a bucket
-Fill with cleaning items
-Let your kids decorate construction paper or foam stickers
- To glue these on I would use: Super Glue
-To insure the art will stay on.. I would use a sealant.  I know they sell some in a spray can.. You will have to do that part though
-You can do other ones too: Golf, Sports, Fishing, etc.
This is super easy to do: Trunk Tote
-Get a card board box.
-Cut hold out to put the robe in
-let the kids decorate
-Optional-Fill with items they might need on the road: First aid kit, flash light, Water, snacks, atlas.. etc
Mini Travel Kit:
Post it notes, pen, chap stick, playing cards, Family photo, Shout Wipes, gum.. Anything that would be good to have on hand.
-All items are contained in a plastic envelope.  You should be able to get this at Staples, Office Depot, Walmart..
Tool box Card/Gift Card Holder
This is super cute!  You might have to help the little ones with this one.
Make these super cute cupcakes!
You might have trouble with the black cupcake holders.. so you can use silver too!
Lots of the items are simple candy too!
My husband would love this cake!!  I am going to try my hand at this one!
You could make a smaller cake.. or even a round cake for this one if it is just a few of you who would be eating the cake.
