Something about the aisles, and aisles of super terrific, water toys, this year, has moved me to complete indecision. So, when the heat wave arrived this week, I was caught unprepared. Or, almost unprepared, I did have a couple of empty pop bottles.
Now, I know this might be a bit red necky, but the little ones were gloriously happy with it. In fact, they even told me I was the best mom ever. Never mind, that later when I wouldn't give them thirds on popsicles, I was declared the worst mom ever. They love their pop bottle sprinkler.
All I did was take an empty, two liter pop bottle, poke it full of holes (I made a pattern of lines all the way around it, with a thumbtack), and taped it to the hose with duck tape.
Given the short life expectancy of water toys at our house, and the amount of fun the little ones are having with this one, I'm beginning to think it's not too bad an idea.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
