Do-It-Yourself Water Fun
In the spring, your fancy might turn to thoughts of love, but right now it’s summer and well… it’s hot out there! To keep from melting into a pool of your own sweat, your thoughts are turning to the nearest public pool or maybe that beach vacation you can never seem to afford. At this point, even the leaky fire hydrant across the street looks like a good way to cool off.
You may have noticed that nice, cool water is a recurring theme here. It’s a great way to beat the heat, and there plenty of ways to enjoy some great summer water fun without spending a fortune.
The Kiddie Pool. The larger inflatable pools available at many stores can easily accommodate multiple adults, meaning you can take a quick dip to cool off or spend the evening relaxing. These pools are easy to inflate and surprisingly cheap. Of course, why pay for accessories when you can create them yourself.
Water Slide. You could go to a water park, but why? You can easily make your own backyard water fun.
Water Guns. They come in all sort of varieties, from the simple dollar store handgun to the sophisticated space age rifles only a space alien could love. Add in some water balloons, a stout battle plan and have at it.
Car Wash. It’s summer, and sooner or later your vehicle is going to need a bath. Instead of spending money at the car wash, why not grab a bucket and a pair of hoses? If it’s just the little humans that need a bath, then you can always make your own car wash.
So if that beach vacation to Tahiti just isn’t in the cards, never fear. Watery summer fun on a budget is more than possible.
