Day 100: Summertime Sprinklers

If you need you an alternative if you can’t get to the swimming pool. It can likely be found on the side of your house. Growing up, my dad often got out the sprinkler and set it in our backyard in a central location.

He turned the water on high and we got in our swimsuits to play in the sprinkler to cool off. Most the time because it was even more fun, we placed the sprinkler underneath our trampoline. The trampoline’s holes were large enough to let the water spray through.

In many ways, it is even more fun than a swimming pool We would be able to bounce around for cooling off. We had to be careful not to let children who were too young to get on though because it was a bit slippery, though most of the older kids played there regularly without incident.

Sometimes, we even got multiple sprinklers, our sprinklers with different patterns to mix things up. It just goes to show that you don’t have to go very far and spend a lot of money to go have fun with your kids.
