My kids love to throw things...who doesn't? LOL~We have seen the water balloons, but we've always called them water BOMBS, and the kids wanted a bomb version, so...What's a Mom to do?
I love that these are reusable, make no mess, and are made in regular old worsted weight yarn~SO quick to work up, and they suck up a LOT of water!
Follow me for the free pattern~
