The Deluxe Kid WashThank you Pinterest for pointing me to the coolest sprinkler ever: The Deluxe Kid Wash! My daughter's birthday party is this Saturday, it's predicted to be in the 90's, and we do not have a pool. Next best thing to keep the kiddies cool? A sprinkler.
How ToThe Disney Family Fun website has the directions and suggests this can be built for around $40. Guess what? That is correct! We came in just shy of $40.
Where to Purchase the SuppliesAll the PVC was purchased from our local home improvement big box store. We purchased the add-on's from a dollar store. It took about 2 hours max to construct and 10 minutes to take down and store in a nylon bag (also from the dollar store).
For the party we are adding a Slip-N-Slide under the sprinkler to avoid creating a mud bath of our lawn. A cheap tarp will work just as well.
Repurpose when done usingWhen the kiddies get too old for a Kid Wash, repurpose all that PVC. I'm thinking the tubes with the drilled holes will be perfect to put in the garden as part of an irrigation system.

|Instead of boring sponges we went with bath loofahs. The Stop/Go Signs are aluminum platters , 2 for $1!|
|The directions call for Lawn Chair Vinyl Strips. We paid $1 for a vinyl shower curtain, hung it on curtain rings and cut it into strips. It may not last past the party but it was quick, cheap, and serves it's purpose.|
