pvc sprinkler!

School is out and it is officially HOT here in North Carolina!


I have been seeing DIY PVC sprinklers all over the internet lately. They are all awesome and I knew I (okay, Michael) had to make one. We decided to go with the "Kidwash 2".


The plans call for landscaping misters which cut back on water waste. As much as we plan on using the kidwash this summer a little water conservation would be a good thing.


It was a HUGE hit!




Michael even got in on the action! I ran through it a couple of times too and it was seriously refreshing!


The cost was very low, about $14, and it took Michael about 30 minutes to put it together.

What are your plans to bet the summer heat?

Looks like fun. I've thought about making one as well, but it is still warming up here, so maybe in a few weeks.

Thanks for sharing this! We (OK, my husband) had made a clothing rack out of PVC pipe for a garage sale in May. And instead of taking up space in the storage, it's now been repurposed as a sprinkler for my son.
