How to Make a Leak Proof Water Blob

By now, I am sure you have seen these water blobs circulating on Pinterest and all over your favorite blogs. And - for good reason! Water blobs will keep the kids entertained for hours. 

The only problems that seem pretty universal with the duct tape method is that they take a long time to prep - and they leak within minutes!

This tutorial is a little different. I used about 6-inches of duct tape on the entire thing! It has been sitting in our yard for 3 days now - with NO leaks, at all. And - it only took about 20 minutes to get ready!

*Update: I just drained our water blob. The grass under it was dying and stinky. :( I'm hoping that it will perk back up in a few days - but I definitely won't leave it out for more than 2 days next time!

I knew there had to be another (better, faster, & easier) way!

I had used a similar method in making my own walls-of-water for my tomatoes earlier in the spring, and so I knew right away how I would put together our water blob!
