Tried it {the pinterest yard water blob thingy}

Tried it {the pinterest yard water blob thingy}

July 24, 2013

For our 4th of July party we had our big water slide out, but we had a few families with kids coming, so we decided to add some more water fun to the yard, and we made the pinterest water bed thing.  So, I thought it would be a good post for “Tried It”  : )

I was super excited because it was easy & cheap, and I had seen a few blogs where people raved about it – so why not, right?!  We actually already had the plastic too, so it was beyond cheap & easy!  I picked up red duck tape since it was for a 4th of July party & all, and then hubbster put it all together.  The instruction link I had found the most helpful was – this one – from Utah County Mom – so follow that link for great step by step instructions!

We just made a smaller one, and doubled the plastic, and the kids really did love it – but it only lasted about an hour total, haha.  Once the boys got through to the water they actually had more fun with it, lol, so we didn’t stop them, but if you stopped them from ripping it apart, it would definitely last a lot longer.  I think overall it was worth it for sure, and even once they got a big hole in it, it took them quite a bit of fun crazy boy play time to get all the water out, so if you’ve seen the blob, pinned the blob, & are thinking about doing it, I would say go for it!  Maybe triple the plastic if you want to keep it longer, but really the water coming through does make it better.

And it is a gorgeous background for photos, major plus for me, haha – my poor kid, lol

{Tried It} – Verdict – do it – have fun & stay cool!  Happy Summer  : )
