DIY Splash Pad! Items used: Tarp $9.97 at Wal-Mart 10 pool noodles at Dollar Tree Fishing line $2.97 at Wal-Mart Yarn needle $1.77 at Wal-Mart The noodles are wrapped inside the edge of the tarp and "sewn" with the fishing line so that it will hold water. This took about an hour. In the middle, we placed a sprinkler and dish soap. TaDa! Hours of fun! The kids LOVED running and sliding all over the tarp! This is a HUGE success and will be a part of our backyard from now on!
