You Can Make Your Own Slip 'n' Slide For Under $10 — Here's How
We've been cooped up in our homes for a little over two months due to COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders, so we're exhausting every kind of DIY craft that we can get our hands on. Now that we're starting to get a taste of our longed-for summer weather and can no longer withstand baking 12 sourdough loaves per day in 80 degree heat, people are flocking to beaches, parks, and other public spaces to relieve their cabin fever blues. For those of you with a backyard, have you forgotten about the endless possibilities of summer fun that can be held in your own home? Sure, we all have had our fun with store-bought backyard gadgets, but there's something satisfying about perfecting your DIY game.
Slip 'n' slides have been a staple in my family household ever since I could walk — so I've come up with a simple DIY slip 'n' slide that you can make for under $10 (or free, if you already have everything on this very short list!). There's no better way to beat the heat and stay home than hosting a mini water park on your back lawn. Please note, Otter pops are optional (but make for an excellent summer treat after a good slide)!
