Summer Fun and Water Balloons

A few weeks ago, the internet crochet world was crazy with photos, posts and a pattern for crochet water balloons. At first, I thought, “These are so cute, but are they really practical?” Thus began my research…

An aunt of mine hosts several large cookouts each summer, and these cookouts inevitable include a giant water balloon fight for all the children and their parents. My aunt has a dog, so I usually walk around the yard picking up the little broken shreds of balloons so that the dog won’t eat them. So, I decided to make her a set of crochet water balloons. My husband and I played with them (to test, of course) before I gave them to my aunt. THEY WORK! They are amazing!

I bought a bunch of the fluffy blanket yarn, called for in the pattern and got to work. I have made several sets and shipped the orders out! Everyone loves them! They soak up lots of water and are environmentally a much better option than regular balloons!

  • Just dunk in water and throw!
  • No mess!
  • Reusable!
  • Machine washable and dryer safe (delicate settings for both)!

If you are interested in purchasing a set, they are available as follows:

  • Set of 6 (rainbow): $15.00
  • Set of 6 (mixed/random colors of my choice): $15.00
