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."
