I had a conversation with my sister a month back about creating a water play area for her littles in their new back yard. Then I set up an activity day with my playgroup for water play and put in the description that I'd try and put together some pvc pipe for playing and exploring and promptly forgot. Just 2 days before said play date I reread the description and found myself suddenly inspired to create a fully customizable water wall. So, off to Lowes we rumbled.
I had some help from CJ and EMan along the way. There are a few things I'd do differently and will most likely still go back to fix. I'd add glue to the dowels in the pvc so that they don't come off in the peg board and fall behind it. I'd also glue the tubing inside a pvc connector so that it doesn't fall out so often. I will also fill up the swimming pool farther away from the water wall from now on. We were working so hard on building that we tripped over it too many times!
This activity is awesome because it provided everyone the chance to explore on their own playing field. They could build on the wall if they wanted. They could just put together pieces on the grass. They could splash in the swimming pool. It was great fun for all ages!
Grab some pieces of pvc and create your own hours of entertainment!
