At Home Outdoor Water Activities for Kids

July 27, 2020

With summer comes more hours of daylight for families to be outdoors. So, now’s the perfect time to try these low-budget water activities to add some family fun, and with the help of your outdoor plumbing.

These fun outdoor activities are sure way to bring a smile to you and your kids, as well as keep them occupied for hours.

Slip Sliding Fun

One low-cost way to have fun outdoors is running through the sprinklers. It is not only fun for the young but also the young at heart – we dare you not to smile like a little kid!
Running through the sprinklers can be fun for the entire family and will also keep the yard looking green. If you don’t have a sprinkler, the kids can take turns holding a finger over the hose to make your own sprayer, or you can buy a hose nozzle with different settings.
It’s also easy to set up a homemade water slide for your kids and their friends by laying out a big sheet of plastic or a tarp, then spraying it down & keeping it wet, and rubbing it with some dish detergent or shampoo to make it slippery. What a fun way to stay cool!

Hose Fight Alternative

With these hot days, it might be tempting to have a water hose fight. But, since Eastern Plumbing is interested in helping you save money on your water bill, we are suggesting water gun fights instead! This is just as fun and will save you water and money in the process.

Not only do water guns allow for more strategic fun, they also use less water than a hose. As an added bonus, water guns are much easier to run away with and avoid attacks.

Water Balloon Battle
Another great activity is a water balloon fight. You can make teams of boys vs. girls, parents vs. kids or just throw water balloons at each other! Much like the hose vs. water guns issue, using water balloons also saves water.
Whether it is a friendly competition or not, water balloon fights are a great activity for family and friends alike and offer the same fun a snowball fight would offer in the winter.
So, this summer, we hope you will find time to enjoy these fun water activities we’ve shared with you! At Eastern Plumbing we want you to make the most of the hottest days of the summer, and just maybe this will become a new family tradition.
