Summary: Children are fascinated with sponges - especially when they are wet. Sponge throwing can get them outside on a nice day and keep them entertained while developing their fine motor skills.

Sponge throwing is a simple activity which does not require many resources.

All you need is several kitchen sponges, 2 or 3 ice-cream containers or buckers, water and a brick wall.

After the sponges soak in water let children pick them up and throw them at the wall where they will stick for several seconds.
