I started seeing "reusable water balloons" this spring. Really? Now we're going to make reusable water balloons? Why?! Okay, we have a dog so when we do real balloons, there is the clean up issue. But why change the age-old tradition of water balloons?
I then read a blog post about them, along with the pattern. They started to seem like a good idea! Softer, no big explosion, no down time for filling. And no clean up.
Megan tested the first few in a friend's pool and said they were great. She said they didn't "really" sink. Well, they go down a foot or so. So at the cottage this past week she took them out with her cousin, into the lake, since there wasn't really a lawn. Apparently they will sink. Otter Lake, south of Huntsville....keep your eyes open for two.
I used almost the entire giant ball, so I'm just counting it as if I did since the leftover wasn't enough for another one.
