Even if you don’t have a swimming pool, your kids can have a blast in the water outside this summer. Before you leave the hose running all afternoon, however, keep in mind the water restrictions in your area.
Slip ‘N Slide
The Slip ‘N Slide isn’t just a plain yellow sheet of plastic anymore. This old school favorite has been upgraded and you can purchase a variety of styles. We love the Slip ‘N Slide Triple Racer that allows three kids to slide at once. At under $25 from Toys “R” Us, it’s a fantastic bargain.
Water Balloon Fight
Kids of all ages (and adults too!) love a water balloon fight. You can get a huge bag of balloons for just a couple dollars — so this is good, cheap fun.
Washing the Car
Let your kids get in their bathing suits and then put them to work washing to family cars. Kids love playing in water. So give them a few buckets and sponges, and let them have it.
