THE Cutest Water Fight Ever.

Have a wonderful weekend! Host a water fight if you need a little cooling down. Here are some fun water ideas from last year…

Nothing says SUMMER like a water fight!

THE Cutest Water Fight Ever.

You definitely need the right tools, however so what are our options?

1. Water guns.  They break, only hold a little water and that is if you can get water in them – they seem impossible to fill!

2. Hoses.  They flood the grass, waste water and get you SOAKED.

3. SQUIRT bottle.  Now you’re talkin’!

THE Cutest Water Fight Ever.

But you can’t just get ANY squirt bottle, check these ones I found at Michael’s – they were SCREAMING summer to me:)

THE Cutest Water Fight Ever.

We don’t want any fighting over these so in comes the vinyl!  Everything is better personalized!

(Check this post for a step by step vinyl application tutorial)

Now fill with water

THE Cutest Water Fight Ever.

THE Cutest Water Fight Ever.

And FIGHT

THE Cutest Water Fight Ever.

Take a water break,

THE Cutest Water Fight Ever.

and FIGHT some more!

Look Out!  Here she comes!

Surprise your kids with a bucket full of water toys, and please – don’t forget the personalized SQUIRT bottles!

    Ah, water fights. I remember the days. I still try now, but my wife isn't quit as fond of them as I am. :-) May just have to target the kids more this year.

    These photos are wonderful!! As is the idea. Great inexpensive water guns! So, let the games begin! :-)

    Those look great. My kiddo's are always bugging for squirt guns but I don't like buying them for the reasons that you mentioned. I will be picking up some water bottles for this.
    Thanks.

    I LOVE this idea! My middle son usually has a water party since his b-day is in the middle of July and I think this would be a GREAT take home gift after the party and also something they can use during the party as well. Love it!!!!! THANKS! =)

    You are so fun! I love this idea. My kids spent 2hrs playing with them yesterday. It saved me from running the hose, which saved water, which in turn saved my grass from turning into a swamp! Thanks for keeping my kids clean!

    These are so cute! I'm going to have to check my Michael's for some.
    I applied vinyl monograms to my 3 kids' water bottles, but these are just too fun.

    Great idea. My son's water guns are all broken. This is perfect and they are cute. Did you find the vinyl letters at Michaels as well? I guess i should click on the tutorial link. =)

    What a great idea for a summer party! A nice alternative to the super soakers my husband wants to get our 4 yr old. Your photography really sells it!

    Water is definitely an essential here the past 2 days, we have even added a tent under a tree for the kids to use for a more cooler spot to play as well.

    Dana says:
    This is such a terrific idea! My 4-yr-old has been begging for a water gun to play with the older neighbor boys but I've been hesitant. This is the perfect solution!

    I went to two different Michael's and they were out. Today I was at Jo-Ann's and they had them!!!!! They come in a pack of two for $2.50. The only difference is, the sprayer is the same color as the bottle instead of white like the ones from Michael's.

    I'm sorry, what was this post about? I was distracted by the insanely CUTE kids!!! :) It looks like a blast! I believe I'm going to have to make some of these with the permanent vinyl I have laying around!

    I love this adorable font you used on these bottles! It looks so playful!
    What is the name of it?

    Michael's has those same squirt bottles this year, too. I just picked up several last week for this very purpose! I love the personalization idea though! Thanks for the tip!
