The Only Water Balloons You'll EVER need!


I am so excited about my newest item in my crochet shop!  I don't usually do posts on just one particular item, but this one is such a game changer, and so much fun, that I just had to write about it.

What is the one question you dread to hear during the summer?

"Mom/Dad, can you fill up water balloons for us?"




If you agree to this request, you'll be spending at least an hour at the hose or the kitchen sink filling up those darn balloons, just hoping that they don't accidentally slide off the faucet and splash water all over you.  Cursing under your breath, because even though you know your kids are going to have a blast with those said balloons, that fun will only last 5 minutes.

And THEN you still have to pick up all those balloon pieces that are all over the lawn!  No matter how much your kids promise they will pick it all up, you know you'll be out there finishing the clean up process.

All for 5 minutes of fun.

NOT ANYMORE!!!

Now, we have CROCHETED WATER BALLOONS!!!!

These balloons are made from baby blanket yarn, so they soak up water like sponges.  All you need is a few buckets around the yard, filled with water, and you can continually soak your balloons and then throw them at your preferred target!  And, you can use them over and over again!

So much summer fun, with barely any prep work!

I had my girls test them out for me.  Before I put them up for sale, I wanted to make sure they actually worked and, most importantly, they were safe.  I let my oldest throw them at me as hard as she could, AND THEY DIDN'T HURT!!!  I got soaking wet, but it didn't hurt at all!

Craftsy

There are many children who are allergic to latex, and have never been able to be a part of the joyous water balloon fights during the summer.  Now they can!!

Seriously, these are so much fun.  My girls were laughing and having a blast the whole time.

As for clean up?  Each order comes with a mesh bag that you throw the balloons into when you are done.  Throw that bag in the dryer on delicate, and they are dried and ready for the next time your children want to play!

See them in action:


They started by prepping the balloons.


And the water fight began!!!!!





Daddy thought it would be funny to have them team up and attack Mommy!!!




Eventually they went back to throwing them at each other


Throw them in a mesh bag to dry, and they are ready for the next water balloon fight!



If you'd like to buy a set of your own you can at my Square Market Store

  5. What an awesome idea! One of the things I don't like about regular water balloons is having to pick the little bits out of the lawn after they pop. These would definitely solve that problem!

  10. I never even seen this! I absolutely LOVE this idea! So easy and looks just as much fun, even more than balloons! Less mess as well from picking up popped balloon pieces all over the yard. I should mention this to my crochet friends or and learn how to myself!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can find free patterns all over for them honestly. Simply put it's magic ring with 8 dc, 16 dc next round, 2 more rounds of 16, decrease to 8, then decrease to 4. Finally do 8 sc and wrap the tail around.

  14. What! How amazing are these? I just love that they are reusable - the normal water balloons create so much waste. Such a great idea! Well done.

  16. I was a bit skeptical when I saw the words Crocheted Water Balloons, but these look amazing! The main reason I don't buy water balloons is that I don't want to clean up all those little pieces. This is such a smart idea!

    1. No more little pieces! Clean up is as simple as putting them in the dryer now.

It looks like your kiddos have a blast with them too :) I have a one year old so I wouldn't have to worry about her chewing on them. LOL
