Toddlers + Water Balloons = Lots of Laughing. Logen loved to touch, thrown, stomp and squish the water balloons. He had so much fun watching them pop. We would quickly pick up the water balloon after it had been squashed and throw it away so he didn't put it in his mouth or play with it more but man, he loves water balloons! and they were only $1 at the dollar store. I should say, I have purchased water balloons from walmart before and they were terrible. They didn't work at all. I purchased these from the dollar store and they worked better but you can't fill them up super full or they will pop earlier..I like to fill them up and put them in a pot of water to protect them until he wants to throw them in the backyard or wherever.
