May is here, and weather is warming up! Before we know it, it'll be summer time!
A favorite childhood pastime... tossing water balloons. That mess, though! Yes, there are more eco-friendly rubber balloons out there, now, but nobody likes cleaning up tiny bits of broken balloon from the yard.
That's where crocheted reusable water balloons come in! They are just as fun, and don't make a mess! Just soak in a bucket of water, and toss! Wash in a mesh bag when dirty.
