DIY squishies

I have been seeing squishies around for awhile now but can not find them in stores, :/ so we tried to make our own. Here is how we did it along with some tips and tricks to try out and side notes of what not to do.
First start with the right sponge. Do not use one with a lot of holes (like we did) Then use puff paint to paint the sponge any way you want. Do not use any other paint. Puff paint dries soft, other paint will make the squishie hard.  (black one was done with other paint) These can be really fun to make and play with. They remind me of stress balls. They can be made into key chins and can be a neat personal gift for friends.

For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not.

Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
