FUN activity for the kids outdoors.... DIY Kids Water Wall by playingbythebook via curbly Kids Water_Wall #Bookjigs and #SummerReadingExtravanganza
Water wall for the Kids......... 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.

DIY Kids Water Wall by playingbythebook via curbly. this is more about play, but I think something a little more durable with this same idea might go well in the sideyard garden/play area...
