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!

Summertime Fun Ideas are Coming!

Hey folks. Sorry I haven't been around much. I have two other blogs that I primarily write for, I also have three children, and then we've had a series of events these past few months. I've been quite busy.

Summer is here and the kids are home from school and I'm trying really hard to balance my time better. The kids are very needy and my time is limited, but I think we can help one another out.

I'd like to start a series of summer ideas for kids. I've got a few ideas of things to keep the kids busy and entertained this summer. I'm sure many of you will be searching for tips and tricks.

Be looking for upcoming posts with great ideas and if you have any ideas that you'd like to share, please leave a comment or email me at knowhimwell at hotmail dot com.

Have a great summer everyone!
