We’re big fans of water! Even in the cold, sometimes breezy winds of Seattle, we’re getting out the mini pool to play outdoors. So we’re making a few fun washcloth pom pom water toys to splash around with in the pool, very similar to our wet water sponges we’ve made before.

Supplies for Washcloth Pom Pom Sponges: 

  • washcloth
  • zip tie
  • scissors

1. Fold your washcloth in half.

2. With one side of the short folded end, start to fold the washcloth accordion style, like a fan.

3. Holding the accordion fold together tightly, add a zip tie around the center and pull it tight. Trim off the excess plastic tie with scissors.

4. Fluff out the edges a little bit and these sponges are ready for playtime.

**The great part about these washcloth sponges is they can easily be put into the washing machine after a few uses, helping keep them clean.

So fill up the mini pool, dunk these washcloth sponges in water, and they are ready for a toss! Check out our video sharing our Target Toss Water Game!
