Water Bottle Sprinkler
May 31, 2012 4 Comments
Kid-makers, we know you just can’t wait to run into the sunshine this summer break to play. This cool project idea can quickly turn your backyard into a DIY water park!
Click here for instructions from Curbly.com on how to make your own backyard sprinkler out of an empty water bottle, old ball point pens and a garden hose. You do need 2 things you won’t have lying around the house but together they cost less than your $5 allowance.
And why stop at one? Add a garden hose splitter . . .
and make more sprinklers to spray you from all angles! Just remember that each sprinkler you add to the same faucet will lower the water pressure.
And why only a water bottle? Raid your recycle bin for crazy shapes and sizes. Or try something other than a ball point pen! As always, tell us about your creative adventures making water bottle sprinklers at email@example.com.
