The hit of the ‘hood

11 Jun

As soon as we saw the directions for the KidWash (make your own bike-wash/spray park) we knew it had to happen.  I saw this idea on Angie’s Six-tastic Summer List, and immediately sent an email to Michael – who in turn set off across town to get the parts (our Lowe’s didn’t have the mister thingies.).  

It came together in less than an hour, even with two little helpers. I think the final cost was around $20, maybe a little more since we bought a special cutter for the PVC to make it super easy.

So worth it.

All the neighborhood kids, big and small wanted a turn – even some Mommies were asking to have it out when they go running. 🙂 (well, our littlest friends, the 2 year old crew, didn’t really dig it, but everyone else did!)

      Hi! He had to go to a different Lowe’s – The one in Noblesville had them in stock. He ended up buying two bags, which I would reccomend, as one broke as he was putting it in to the PVC. Good luck! It’s lots of tun!
