    we ysed to use these in my old school,but not as water bombs but like sand bombs.in stead of water and craft paper just use sand and note book paper.as soon as it hits the person it would burst and cover them in sand!

    My brother used to make those, you shoot them with a rubber band right? Is there an Instructable on how to make them???

    or you can make a bigger hole, unfold, write something on the center square, refold, and look through the hole.

    haha we used to use the in my old dorm for cups when the rest were dirty (we were outlandishly lazy :D). our school had this really bad paper that was semi-plastic (i think) and it held the water in really well

    it wont leak out... but if you leave the water in there fo some time (depending on what paper you used) it would fall apart.

    Very unique just like al the other water bombs on the site...but whatever I guess it's all right.
