This water blobs is ready to entertain your cute little child for hours. But I know that you may find some problem to make it with the duct tape method. You think that, it take a long time to prepare and it is very easy to leak.
But my tutorial is little bit different. For the entire thing, I used 6 inches of duct tape. And it has been sitting in our yard for 3 days and without any leaking and it took only about 2 minutes to make it.
The secret ingredient: an iron
- Painter’s plastic/plastic sheeting (affiliate link), *4 mil* – any size (I used a 10×25-foot roll, and cut it down to about 10×20)
- Ironing board and iron
- Parchment paper
- Duct tape – optional, for sealing the hole for the hose
At first turn your iron on and set it to it’s highest setting. I think it will be more helpful to lie the iron board flat on the floor so that the weight of the plastic didn’t get any kind of bad issue. And I had to move the iron board instead of moving the plastic.
Then let the kids go wild! We sprayed a little water on top to splash on, and they loved it!
