DIY reusable water blob

waterblobI saw this idea recently and luckily a friend had just tried a water blob with wonderful success so we gave it a shot!

ITS A WATER BLOOOOOOBBBBBB!!!

What you’ll need:
Plastic sheeting-thickness varies- we purchased 6mil thickness from Home Depot just to be safe…we have curious dogs.
Hair straightener or iron
Wax paper
Scissors
Hose
Food coloring, glitter, spongy toys *optional* I used teal food coloring
(You can also use duct tape for the edges however it will most likely leak more, hold less water, and not be reusable)

I purchased enough plastic sheeting to make a first attempt as well as a 2nd…just in case. All I did was seal the seams by folding a piece of wax paper over the edge and running my hair straightener over it. (Leave a small hole to fill with water)You do have to be careful not to burn through the plastic doing this method…but…doing it this way allows you to add more water, and trust me you want more water! I think the first round was super simple though and we will be making more of these 🙂
