Water Balloon Piñata
The July heat wave continues! Though it may feel better to stay inside of an air-conditioned building, kids still need a daily dose of fresh air to maintain their physical and mental health.
Beat the heat with water balloon piñata, or as my kids call it, water balloon bash!

Water Balloon Piñata Instructions
I purchased biodegradable water balloons and tied them together in clusters of three with cotton yarn. I hung the water balloons from a low pine branch and brought the boys outside to see.

Boy, were they excited!
They wanted to start bashing the balloons right away with their plastic baseball bat, but I had one more trick up my sleeve before the fun could begin!
As in classic pinata games, players must be blindfolded and spun before playing water balloon bash. The boys loved spinning each other, but they loved the next part even more!
Whack! Splash! Giggle! Repeat!
What good fun…and an awesome way to cool off and play outside in the heat of the summer!
