How to Crochet Reusable “Water Balloons” with Video Tutorial

Do your kiddos love water balloons? Mine do too! But, I worry when they play with them because we have a cute but somewhat naughty and very curious puppy. He tries to eat the pieces! I would never want the little pieces stuck in his throat! So, I have been wanting to crochet up a set of these reusable “water balloons”. No, they are not a regular balloon material. But they are made of yarn and they are great for doing water play time with! They are made of a specific type of yarn, which is called Blanket Yarn. I was able to get a bunch of this type of yarn, in the color blue, a while ago from a place you may never guess… Dollar Tree! Sometimes they have yarn! Anyways, I also had some purple Blanket Yarn on hand. Below is a yarn they have in stock now for $1.00!
