Oh, the memories return…this was one of my favorites as a kid and even as an adult. The slip-n-slide! A project that is quite easy. Follow the steps and you too can get out and go for a ride!
Skill Level- Beginner
Under-Over Rating- Under $20/Over 15 min
Tools and Materials
5ML or thicker roll of plastic
Step 1- Unravel your roll of plastic down a slope or a hill (Depending on how adventurous you are).
Step 2- Secure with Garden staples on corners and sides.
Step 3- Cover Garden Staples with colorful Duct Tape, so no one will get hurt.
Step 4- Hook up your Garden Hose and turn it on!

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...
