I used to make the “water bombs” all the time when I was a kid. Except they were more like “paper balloons” – they get soggy too quickly if made with regular paper. Newspaper holds up a bit better to the water, but isn’t strong enough structurally. Gotta throw them quick either way. I make a paper airplane that is based on the paper balloon design. It’s pretty sweet.

… talking to me? Well, I must say I hope No one gets mugged. OK, that’s done. So, for fun I say “YES! but only if only you use the Ninja star too!” Distract the imaginary mugger with the x-wing fighter. He/she will be dazzled. Then wham! Spudart ninja star to the rescue. that’s how it plays out in my mind.
