Is it hot where you are today? If the heat is getting to you and your little ones, and you have a backyard to play in, no matter how small, this would be a fun way to cool off!
Cool the kids off with a homemade sprinkler. Take a 2 liter soda bottle, poke holes in it. Attach to a garden hose via a male to male adapter, available from Amazon for just over $2.00!
Toss over a tree branch and let hang. You can adjust how the water sprinkles by adjusting the water flow. When the bottle stops working well, just switch it out with another bottle, no additional cost!
This one might not just be for kids! The dogs might love it too ... or even an adult or two! You could even use it to water your garden(s)!
