My son loves to run through the sprinklers while we water our grass in the summer, so I thought it would be fun for him to enjoy some water play in a new fun way. I couldn’t really find what I was looking for at Target or Toys ‘R Us, so we decided to make our own sprinkler. It isn’t really a sprinkler per say, but a “car wash for kids.”
I actually found this in our Family Fun magazine and went ahead and made it in about 40 minutes. The cost was about $20.00 and it was easy to make. My son also helped us build it which was another plus. It can store very easily in our garage at the end of the season as it stores flat into three pieces. The best part about this is that is will last for years to come! It isn’t the junk
like you find at big stores that only lasts one season. So head over to your local hardware store and build this together as a family. I can’t wait to have some of my son’s friends over to test this out! Click here if you would like the directions for making this. Enjoy the heat of July!
