Water Bombs Pattern

Updated: Jan 26, 2023

I've been making these for years after attempting a few water balloon patterns and just not liking them very much. I needed something that I could whip up quick that would also be fun and profitable for craft shows. I just couldn't sell the water balloons for a price that would make them worth the time and product it took in my area.









The balloon residue I found in the yard AFTER they had been supposedly cleaned up!

Not to mention the fact that I got so sick of finding these in my own yard all summer. I also needed an alternative for summer fun since my daughter's hypersensitivity to chlorine makes it pointless for us to have a swimming pool.


I came up with these bomb options and they have been tested and approved by my own kiddos, cousins, friends, and buyers for many years now with a very high success rate. The favorite seems to be the smallest size for the majority, with the larger version a first choice for the older kids, and they all love to whip the discs like a frisbees for added distance and splat effect.



The pattern download contains all 3 versions of these bomb designs. Below you will find the pattern for the Large version. Make up a few, soak them in water, and try them out for yourself!
