Pin it in a Minute: Water Sponge Bombs

Summer time fun with the kids doesn't have to be expensive.

In this week's "Pin it in a Minute," we test a pin from social media website Pinterest, to see if water sponge bombs can take the place of the classic summer water balloon.

The pin said you'll need a couple of supplies: a variety of colored sponges, a scissors and string.

First, take your sponges, and cut them into 1-inch pieces.

Next, measure out 1-inch pieces.

Then, gather 9 strips of sponge and tie them tightly together with a string.

Shift the sponge pieces around a little so they create a ball shape, otherwise they'll stay looking like a bow tie.

Snip off excess string, and finally they're ready to soak in water and use.
