The Fun Hose – A Guest Blog by Lindsey Wold of The Kid-Friendly Home
Confession: I mowed over one of our hoses. But I like to add more information to that story…it was a blazing hot day, my husband was at work, I was trying my best to get the whole lawn done WHILE checking on dinner cooking inside, and changing over loads of laundry AND all of the kids were playing along-side me during the entire process. We don’t have a gas-powered mower…we use an awesome Fiskers clipper – an updated version of the old-fashioned clipping mower, or whatever they are called 🙂 Anyway, I kept telling myself, “slow down and move the hose” but kept thinking, I can just move around it. Well, low and behold, I cut it. I was frustrated with myself but figured maybe we could patch it up with something some day.
Today, my husband saw the nice gash when the kids turned the hose on to do slip n’ slide. He laughed and then we said, it could just be called “the fun hose” and enjoy the water squirting out of the huge cuts. Then, he had an even better idea: drill holes all over it and turn it into a really fun hose!
I highly recommend this – we’ve enjoyed it on the ground, in a circle, hanging from trees, along the slip n’ slide…it’s all a blast! We will even set it up sometime by our garden for some easy watering of our vegetables!
ENJOY! This along with the
makes for great water fun!
