-Put out that water table that has been sitting in your shed since last year
-Sprinklers:  They aren't just for the grass!
-Buy a Slip-N-Slide (or make one!)
-Let the kids squirt each other with spray bottles filled with water
-Find a nearby sprayground
-Fill up the baby pool and let them splash around or play with old dolls and cars/boats
-Put water in buckets and let them "wash the car"
-Fill up some plastic cups with water and let them have a water fight
-Have the kids help with watering the flowers/garden

  1. A friend of mine put a baby pool at the bottom of her daughters backyard slide, hose pouring water down the slide to make her own water slide! Kids loved it!!

    1. Tanya, my kids decided on Saturday, to put the sprinkler by the slide and make a homemade water slide, too! Great idea!! Thanks for stopping by!
