Now is the time to be thinking about creating some outdoor water fun if you have a bunch of kids home for the summer an no built in swimming pool. They don’t have to be left out as there are plenty of diy outdoor water fun that you can create in no time at all.

The best part is they are easy to make and use things that I had laying around my house.  Perfect! All you need is an empty water bottle from your recycling, duct tape, a sock that is missing its match (which we seem to have an abundance of), dish soap and some food coloring.

check out the full instructions which are soo easy the kids can make these fantastic bubble blowers.
