Water Baloons

I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s June and the weather’s getting hot. While keeping cool is a priority, keeping kids entertained is also vital, both for their sanity and yours. One fun way to combine both are water balloons.

After all, what can be more fun than throwing water-filled bags at someone in the heat. Thus, while it’s fun to throw, it’s also fun to catch and get splashed. However, real water balloons are a bit of a pain to fill, and, of course they are single use and necessitate a large cleanup. So, here are some water balloons free patterns that you can soak in a bucket and chuck at someone else repeatedly.

 These crocheted water balloons are great, because they soak up a limited quantity of water and make a satisfying “splat!” when they land, without inundating the surroundings. Moreover, when done in two colors, you could use them in a game of backyard water baloon war between two teams. Lastly, like I mentioned, these are multiple use projectiles that don’t require filling beyond a quick soak in a bucket.

Water Balloons in Stripes

These wonderful crocheted water balloons are made using the very bulky Bernat Blanket Stripes yarn. Therefore, they have a substantial water carrying capacity, but not so much as to flood your yard. In addition to all the wonderful properties of crocheted WBs, they are also quite beautiful in their own right, and a set like pictured would be a wonderful idea for a summer gift for taking to the cottage.
