Splash pad made with a tarp and pool noodles. I did sew five inch strips every foot along the edge (pink thread) to help keep the noodles in place. We also placed our sprinkler beach ball in the center of our splash pad.
PVC Sprinkler Water Toy - how smart is this? $10 worth of materials from the hardware store will bring lots of joy this summer. :) My friend did this with her kids and used a couple of pipes and plastic streamers as well, they called it a "car wash" and rode their bikes through it. They played with it all summer.
