water wall

I’m finally getting around to reusing some items that have been sitting around our house for one reason or another now that we can play outside in the beautiful weather!

For instance, we have parts from the little guys crib, which was recalled, that I have been saving for some kind of project and I have come up with two. Here is the first…

We made a “water wall”…much like the one  below that I found on Pinterest.

I decided to use what we had lying around and instead of a piece of fence, I used the mattress support!

We also had to replace a hose this past weekend (have you ever heard of the peanut in the hose prank?!), so I had plenty of extra hose lying around.

I was able to attach our bottles and tubing with zip ties instead of wing nuts…and we can change our water path on a whim!

We were limited on bottle choices as our recycling was picked up this morning, but I will be saving plastic containers to change our wall up in the next few weeks.

Ours was pretty simple, but I am only dealing with a four year old and almost two year old so it was entertaining for them!

We will be adding some toys to their playhouse in the next week or so, and doing some landscaping in the next month or so.

I am hoping that the water wall will help to water some of the plants we have planned near the playhouse!

home is…fun summer projects!

    That is awesome and I especially love that you made it with extra stuff and recyclables. My kids love doing “Look Alike” projects. There is a series of Look Alike books (sort of like I Spy but each picture is an intricate scene where everything is made of recyclable type of stuff). So for our Look Alike box we have it filled with recyclables plus broken electronics and other junk and they pull out the box and make whatever invention they can come up with. We used to have a Look Alike club at school too. Your kids would LOVE that!!
