One more month until summer break is over.
Half of me is lamenting elementary school homework again but the other half is doing cartwheels to get boys back on a consistent schedule (that and if I hear my men say, “I know you are but what am I?” to each other one more time I’m gonna loose it).
Towards the beginning of the summer we had the wonderful opportunity of participating in another one of Home Depot’s Style Challenge again. This time it was all about the Outdoor Games Style Challenge. Our challenge…make an outdoor game out of PVC pipes from Home Depot. Well we didn’t make just one. Oh no, we went a little nuts-o and made three!
First project we made was a bigger and better version of our original PVC sprinkler / car wash. This time we added another extension and made it a double.
Next up we put together a DIY PVC Volleyball water game. It works best with a balloon.
Whoever gets the ball or balloon wet looses the point, the rule is simple (unless you’re playing with an older brother who tends to make up new rules as the game goes along).
The last DIY project we made … a PVC Water Balloon Catapult.
It marries three things boys love. Speed, destruction and competition. Put a balloon in, pull down the lever and let it launch. A serious neighborhood hit.
Head on over to the Home Depot Apron Blog for our complete instructions on putting each project together.
