DIY PVC Pipe “Kid Wash”


PVC Water Soaker Toy

Baylee loves all things to do with water. If she doesn’t get her “water fix” she’ll do naughty things like flood our basement or overflow the upstairs bathtub. Our ceilings have been customized by Baylee.

When I was told about this DIY project on a nifty little website called Instructables.com, I knew Baylee had to have this thing.

KidWash 2 : PVC Sprinkler Water Toy

We gathered all the supplies, most of which were readily available at any hardware store, but had to wait on the quarter mister sprayers since they were only available at Lowes in our city. Unfortunately, Lowes is about as far away from our house as you can get and still be in the city. It’s at least a 30 mile round trip.

We finally had another reason to go to that part of town, so we made the drive and stopped into Lowes to get our misters. Unfortunately, we discovered a new restaurant in the Lowe’s parking lot–Texas Roadhouse–and since it was dinner time and we were hungry, we had to stop there, too, so the trip to buy a $6 pack of misters turned out to be much more expensive (but aren’t those buns and cinnamon butter TO DIE FOR?).

In any case, we made the Kid Wash today. It was very easy to make and the best part is that it is a HUGE hit with Baylee. She thinks it’s hilarious and hasn’t grown a bit bored of it yet. Today was the perfect day for it, too, as it hit nearly 100 degrees.

$24 in PVC & glue + $6 quarter spray misters + $50 at Texas Roadhouse + $5000 in gas to get there (just kidding) = endless summer fun!

Giving Baylee a non-destructive way to play with water — PRICELESS.

Note to self–must find copycat recipe for buns & cinnamon butter…..
