Like I said it my last post, Summer is coming and we can feel it! Last weekend, I made the cutest little sprinkler for the boys to play in. It was so easy, and they had so much fun playing it in! Here’s how-
The first thing you’re going to do is tape off one end of your pool noodle so that it’s water tight. I used four pieces of duct tape for mine, two short and two long. I went over the top cross ways with the two short ones and then went around the sides with the long ones to really seal it in. The more the better, you don’t want it to bust!
Next, take something tiny and sharp and you’re going to poke holes down the noodle. These holes are where the water is going to come out! Using a kabob skewer made it really easy for me! I did about ten holes in a straight line down one side, but you can get creative here! Make sure you go all the way through the first layer to the hollow center that way the water will reach your hole.
Now, if you’re kids are ready to get wet, take your noodle and you’re going to duct tape it to your hose. Slide your hose nozzle (turned off, of course) into your noodle a few inches, and then use the tape to hold it in place. I wrapped a piece of duct tape around two times up high and two times lower down and that was plenty strong.
Now, you’re probably wondering why my sprinkler has an extra piece of duct tape at the middle. If you pick up your sprinkler while the water is on, the pressure gets too high and bust your noodle. I learned that the hard way, but if it happens to you, just tape it up and keep playing! If you need to move your sprinkler, just make sure to turn the water off first so it doesn’t bust.
Rhett probably had more fun in it than any other kid, he was running and splashing and just having a blast in it! Whenever it starts warming up outside, I make sure to have lots of swim diapers on hand for my littles. I grabbed one of the bulk boxes from Sam’s Club of Huggies® Little Swimmers® to stock up for the summer. They are my favorite since they slide on easily and have easy open tabs for taking off. We’ve been using Huggies® Little Swimmers® since Sawyer was a baby and they are great. They don’t get huge in water and they are so cute, especially all the new ones that they have for Finding Dory!
