Place bath toys in one of the freezer bags and fill with water. Try to squeeze out most of the air and seal tightly.
Use duct tape to make the seal extra strong. I used two overlapping strips folded over the edge.
Place your filled bag, with the taped side down, inside another freezer bag. Again, squeeze out as much air as possible and seal tightly.
Duct tape that second edge for extra security.
Keeping a Water Blob from Leaking
We had no issues with leaks but it never hurts to be extra cautious and place a towel down before placing the blob down for playtime.
Let baby squish, explore, and play!
