Crochet Water Balloons

Crochet Water Balloons
Crochet Water Balloons

Want to try something new this summer? Try working up some Crochet Water Balloons! These have the same effect as traditional water balloons but without the waste and cleanup of broken water balloon strips. User a super bulky yarn for extra squish and absorbency and you'll be amazed at how fun these crocheted water balloons are! Plus, this way you'll be saving money and trips to the store for more water balloons since you can just reuse these as often as you want. 

From the Blogger: "Did you know that you can crochet water "balloons"? These water balloons are awesome! By making them with Bernat Blanket Brights, you get classically colorful water balloons that are super absorbent and squishy! This also means that they are washable, reusable, dryer safe, latex free, and eco friendly. No more spending time filling water balloons- just drop these in a bucket of water and you are ready to go! Make them for some summer fun or for your next summer craft fair."

OMG seriously one of the best ideas I have ever seen here. It is a PAIN to go around your yard and try and find every little balloon piece hiding under a tree or buried in the grass. The concept is genius! This gives me the idea to make a bucket full of these for my friend who has 3 boys and a great big yard -)

When my Army son was posted to Iraq, water balloons were such highly requested items that I included several bags in his monthly care package from home. I wish I could have found the pattern for these earlier! I would have made enough for his entire unit, and since theyre reusable, they certainly would have been better than the thin latex variety. Well done!

Best idea ever! When I taught elementary school this would have been the coolest event during our field day activities. These crochet balloons are way cuter than wet sponges. They also would have made colorful take home prizes for the students. This is a project to keep to share with the grandkids.
