How can I reuse or recycle popped water balloons?
We’ve had an email from Danielle – experiencing situation that will be oh-so-common at the moment:
My kids love playing with water bombs. There are gazillions of split water bombs all over my garden and garage roof and god know where else. I have also collected a tubful thinking I might do something with them. But what …? Obviously they are all split ones?
We’ve covered foil balloons on the site before but not the rubber type – so any ideas?
Like regular balloons, they’ve got an roll of rubber at the open end – snipped off, they make strong (but quite tight) rubber bands.
As for the larger, flat pieces – anyone know any good ways to fix them together to make a patchwork? While it’s not going to be elegant, it might make a fun splashproof surface for in a kids’ room or used to add grip when opening stubborn jars.
Any other suggestions?
