Happy first day of summer!!!
Today is Summer Solstice! What better way to celebrate the first day of summer but with a fun water activity! I don’t care how old you are… tossing a water balloon (either as a game or all out WAR to get your friends and family wet) is always fun.
I called upon my neighbor and her two boys for a little fun and excitement. Four kids vs two adults… it was time to get wet!
I remember back in the day I used to stretch the balloons over the kitchen faucet… NOT ANY MORE! The KAOS Fast ‘N Easy Filler was just that…fast and easy! I attached the filler to the hose, then the Tie-Not tool to the filler and off I went filling 50 balloons.
First of all, I have to say I am very impressed with the quality of the balloons. Prior to using KAOS, the water balloons would always pop on me while filling (not to mention rip while trying to pull them onto the kitchen faucet). I only had 1 pop (and that was due to the HOT water coming out of the hose…reminder to parents, let the water cool off before filling the balloons).
The balloons easily fit onto the nozzle of the filler. With a push of the button I was able to quickly fill each balloon with water. I didn’t get a good handle on the Tie-Not tool…but that is because I had 4 kids DYING to toss water balloons. I quickly tied the balloons by hand. With that said, I can see how easy the tool could be. It allows you to tie the balloon without squeezing and squishing your fingers. All you have to do is loop the balloon once over the tool, place the end through the slot and pull…POOF, your balloon is tied in a knot!
It took longer to fill the balloons than it took for the kids to pop every single one! I would recommend filling all of the balloons before telling the kids. That way you can set up two buckets full of water balloons… then unleash the children to get WET!
We told the kids to either toss the balloons on the ground near their target (AKA: child or adult they wanted to soak) or under the chest… NOT at the face! The water balloons seemed to only pop when they hit the ground, unless they were really full.
