Summertime Fun: Slip 'N Slide

As promised, I'll be telling you about some ideas to keep your kids busy and entertained this summer.

One my kid's favorite summer activities is playing in the water. Unfortunately, we do not have a pool so we improvise by using a Slip 'N Slide. You can purchase a Slip 'N Slide for as low as $8 up to $35-$40. If you have a tarp, a waterhose, and a sprinkler at home you can make your own. Just be sure that you don't use bricks on the corners to hold the tarp down on the ground. This is what we used when we were kids. (Ouch!)

Tips: You must keep the water slide wet at all times. If you find you're not sliding quickly enough, try using a little soap/dishwashing liquid.

Have fun and be careful!
