Another option would let you turn it into a slip and slide with fountain!  Simply run the garden hose down the length of one side of the sheeting.  Turn the sheeting over, then duct tape the hose into the sheeting (use water proof duct tape).  Run the hose down the other side, and tape in as well.  Take a nail and poke holes, angling so the water will go up and towards the other side.  Plug one end, then attach to water, turn on, adjusting the water accordingly!  (Note: make sure the "U" is positioned at the top of the hill, so that kids don't hit it going down...
