KidWash sprinkler toy



Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean the kids have to stay indoors in the A/C. There are a number of worthwhile summer projects, but the KidWash looks like it has a particularly high fun/effort ratio. A trip to the hardware store for some PVC and mister jets and you can give the Wii a run for its money next weekend.

I headed down to the PVC section of the local home improvement store to pick up supplies. While browsing the adjacent sections for interesting stuff I noticed the micro-irrigation section and inspiration struck: KidWash with mister jets!

The modification worked great. We turned it on and kids from up and down the block started showing up to help with the testing. It’s a lot of fun on foot, but my kids also get a blast out of riding their bikes through it.

This would be great to combine with a DIY visqueen slip and slide.
