WARNING: Be careful, and if you slip and fall and hurt/kill yourself, don't blame me! You might want to think about wearing a helmet or pads or something if you're worried about it...
Step 1: Materials
- Sponges (two for each person)
- Pair of shoes
- Hot glue gun
- Soap or floor cleaning (non-irritating to the skin)
- Bin or bucket for the suds (or use the sink)
- Music for skating to
To play hockey, you may also want:
- A mop for each player
- Some type of object to use as a puck
Step 2: Attach The Sponges
Hot glue works great for this because it can be removed when you're done. It held the sponges to the shoes remarkably well while we used them pretty hard for over an hour.
I attached the sponges to my son's old imitation crocs that were a bit small and were about to be thrown out. I used my "nice" sandals and the glue peeled off easily when I was done.
Step 3: Add the Suds
Now, get your sponge skates nice and soapy. My kids loved standing in the bucket with their skates on.
