Summer isn’t over yet, kid-makers, and we know you’re still looking for ways to turn your backyard into a water park! Add to the splashy fun of the Water Bottle Sprinkler and Backyard Bike Wash projects we posted earlier this summer with your own homemade waterslide! Some people call these “slip and slides”, after the popular toy.
Slip and slides are simple to make and super fun for adults and kids alike. The kind you buy at the store, though, can be too narrow or too short, which is why when lots of folks think of slip and slides they think of ….. grass burns!
As makers, we like to improve on things so that they work better. That’s part of why we loved these instructions of how to make your own slip and slide that’s 10 feet wide by 25 feet long from the We Made That blog! In fact, you can even buy plastic rolls at the hardware store that are 10 feet wide by 100 feet long for as little as $5.
