There was renewed interest in the sponge bombs when we made them into yo-yos! This time I held the sponge bombs together with ouchless hair elastics instead, and they worked very well indeed. A piece of elastic attached made them instant yo-yos!! (As with anything else, be sure to supervise the kiddos while playing.)
When I handed Clara her yo-yo, her entire face lit up, and she let out a big “Woooooooow!!!”.
The girls had lots of fun bouncing their sponge bomb yo-yos up and down… and spinning to swing them around!
They looked a little bit like kid-powered sprinklers.
Splash them into a bucket of water to get really wet!
