From our friends Frugally Sustainable...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 that cost less than 5 dollars at Lowe's. Toss over a tree branch and let hang.

Make your own sprinkler for this summer. Use duck tape to attach to hose and just stab holes into a 2 liter bottle. {makes so much more sense than those cheap sprinklers that break after a week's use!}

Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.  FLIES LOVE THIS!!! Have caught 1000's of flies!!

Time out shaker. Fill with glue, glitter and water. They shake it and when everything settles, time out is over. Plus the kids watching the glitter settle calms them.
