Heather, from WhipperBerry, was planning an activity for her youth at church and came up with a version of water dodge ball.  She decided that it would be fun to kick the game up a notch and create some colorful and fun sponge bombs for their water dodge ball tradition. She used sponges, a mop and some drawer liners – all very durable materials.

Alicia of Mayfly made super simple tin-can lanterns, perfect to use on camping trips. They are so easy and fast, and they are really stunning after dark. Just use some old coffee cans, nails, hangers and some adult supervision.
