We created frozen a sponge toss game and had fun in the sun with Banana Boat as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #BestSummerEver
With school out for summer, we need to be a little creative around here to keep the kiddos occupied and not glued to electronics. Over the weekend, we slathered on our water resistant sunscreen and headed outside to play our sponge toss game. This is the perfect boredom buster and so easy to create! Older children can help make the sponge “balls” and younger children can help fill the buckets with water. This would also be a fun activity for a playdate or birthday party. Just a little warning, it may turn into a water war so adults might want to dress in swimsuits too!
We spend the majority of our mornings, before 110 degree weather hits here in Arizona, outside in the sun. Because we spend so much time in the sun, I need to know that my kids are protected and that the sunscreen will stay put (even in 100+ degree heat). Banana Boat® Sport Performance® Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology™ helps and stays on so we don’t have to keep reapplying. It’s water/sweat resistant up to 80 minutes and available in SPF 15, 30, 50+, 100. My kids like that it doesn’t run in their eyes and according to my almost 5 year old, “it isn’t all slimy and gross”.
Step 1: Cut sponges into fourths using scissors. Tie 8 sponge pieces together with a string and pull tight to create a “sponge ball”. Trim string.
Step 2: Place number stickers 1-5 on the buckets.
Step 3: Apply Banana Boat® Sport Performance® Lotion Sunscreen and head outside!
Step 4: Line the buckets in a row and fill with water.
Step 5: Have your children stand behind the buckets and throw the sponge balls into the buckets. The goal is to get one sponge in each bucket or they can come up with their own creative rules.
