DIY PVC Sprinkler.

Last Saturday the men were bored.
So we attempted a DIY project I had pinned on Pinterest.
The end goal was a DIY sprinkler made out of pvc pipe. 
(Instructions from Printables found here). 
 It was surprisingly easy.
In fact, this little man did a good majority of the construction (with a little adult supervision).

Larry from Home Depot was sweet enough to pull everything from the shelf while I read him my list of needed supplies.

 Perfect way to beat the summer heat.
Then we moved to the front yard and made ourselves our own little car bike wash.
And the neighborhood kids came in droves.

Points were given for best trick…
and best style.
 It was a hit.
Then the party wound down and the littlest man finally got the courage to take his turn.
So tell me, have you tried out any Pinterest projects?
Failure or success?
