PVC Sprinkler Water Toy - how smart is this? $10 worth of materials from the hardware store will bring lots of joy this summer. :) My friend did this with her kids and used a couple of pipes and plastic streamers as well, they called it a "car wash" and rode their bikes through it. They played with it all summer.
water play with multiple activities. It would be neat to have an area where several short hoses and sprayers with containers could be attached. I'd make it longer so that children would be spaced farther apart but I like the natural look of what appears to be a wooden wall and possible wooden steps or a bench behind it to provide better access from the top.
