Summer "Bucket" List" Make Sponge Comet Balls

These Sponge Cosmic Balls are fun to play with in the backyard or in the pool.


To make them all you do is take two regular-sized sponges and cut them each into four long thin strips of sponge.

Tie the eight strips of sponge together in the middle with string, yarn or plastic zip-ties.

You can leave them plain or attach cloth ribbon when you tie them together for a comet tail. If you use a zip-tie, I recommend using the comet tail so you can cover the hard plastic end with the cloth ribbon.

I have seen these in a couple of different places (here and here, for example).
