A good old fashioned water balloon fight is really and truly the greatest thing ever, but it is always fun to mix it up.
So here is a post to bring you a burst of inspiration. :-)
Motherhood on a Dime drew a target on the driveway with chalk and her Happy Buddies had to try to get a bullseye by tossing water balloons.
This Water Balloon Towel Toss idea from Love, Play, Learn looks like a ton of fun.
These Water Balloon Spoon Races from Two Shades of Pink would make a perfect activity at a summer picnic.
What kid wouldn’t love the chance to swing at a Water Balloon Piñata like this one from Scrap Happy Heather?
Send your Happy Buddies outside for a Water Balloon Hunt!
I like the creative and educational twist on this one from Mess For Less.
Recycle an old water or milk jug by cutting off the bottom and using it as a Water Balloon Catcher for this great game over at Spoonful.
Remember those bath time icebergs I made for the Happy Buddy a few years ago?
This is a similar concept… Stick a small toy into a balloon, fill it with water, tie, then put in the freezer.
When the water is frozen, cut away the balloon and tada! You have amazing Ice Eggs from A Little Learning for Two for your Happy Buddies to excavate.
*I suppose it would be worth noting that this particular ‘water’ balloon activity should not involve any kind of throwing at one another – ouch.*
Get a team together for Water Balloon Baseball from icandy handmade.
I am a BIG fan of Ding Dong Ditch-ing random things to neighbors, so this idea from Pennies of Time really spoke to me.
This Happy Home filled up a bunch of water balloons, put them in a box, and left them on the doorstep for another family to find and enjoy on a super sweltering day.
Talk about AWESOME. I mean, we would all be having water balloon fights a whole lot more if they weren’t such a pain to fill up, right?! Do it so that someone else doesn’t have to!! Love it. Sounds like Jesus to me.
Finally, I think Daddy would like to find this when he gets home from a long day at work…
Have fun staying cool.
Happy Water Balloon-ing!
