PVC Sprinkler: Lowe’s outdoor challenge

The last week here has been H.O.T…HOT!!  With temps in the high 90’s and low 100’s we have been feeling the heat.  So when Lowe’s challenged their Creative Network to create something to make the outdoors more fun and memorable, I knew this PVC sprinkler would be a perfect fit and would cool us off.

I have seen a few of these around, but the first one I saw was in the Family Fun magazine a couple of years ago.  I have always wanted to make one.

I decided to come up with my own design and drew it out before we even got started. My husband and I made a few changes to the design when we actually put it together.

I was really happy with how it turned out.  The kids LOVE it.  We even had the neighborhood kids and some cousins over to play in it with us.  The kids rode their scooters through it and we have plans to put it over the slip and slide.  Doesn’t that sound like a ton of fun?!

PVC is really inexpensive and we were able to put this whole thing together for $25.  That is a pretty great price for something that entertained the kids for a couple hours every day and cooled them off during the hottest part of the day.

I will be back to share with you the specific details for how we build this in case you would like to make something similar at your house.

What are some fun ways you are making memories outside this summer? We could always use some fun ideas around here!

Next month I will be back with another outside idea, courtesy of Lowes and I’ll be giving away another Lowes Gift Card!  So be sure to keep checking back!

    This is probably the cutest thing you’ve had on your blog in a while! I love all of your stuff, but THIS! LOVE IT! Normally I hesitate to comment on sponsored projects (I’m just weird, I know), but this was beyond cute. :D It’s something I’ve wanted to make after seeing a similar project on Pinterest…

    Super cute and inventive idea for a sprinkler! I have my sister’s kids over now and then, not to mention I need to install actual sprinklers on my new lawn. This might hold me over until I can find a contractor I trust. It would be fun for the kids and good for my lawn :) thanks for sharing.
