made a trampoline "slip 'n' slide"
** P.S., I took all these pictures with my new zoom lens, love it!!**
Doesn't it look like so much fun?!?! In fact my brother said to me, "Emma, this is like the funnest thing we've done all summer!" So I looked at him and said "Yes, I know thats because I came up with it." Totally kidding :) it was super fun though.
I mean, it's not some amazing piece of art that we made, it's simply a trampoline with soap and a sprinkler under it. Yet it was so much fun and we spent a couple hours out there.
I mean even I had a ton of fun, a lot more fun then I've had in a long time. Now that I'm a teenager I've decided that growing up is lame, oh what I would give to do these kind of things every day.
- ice cubes, shaving cream, etc the more stuff the funner
- hose/water source
- Wet your trampoline down with water from your hose just to cool down the trampoline, you'd be surprised how hot it gets.
- Hook your sprinkler up to your hose and set it underneath the trampoline on top of a bucket
- Spread LOTS of soap around the whole trampoline and rub it in so it get sudsy.
- Add on ice, and other fun things
- HAVE FUN!!
TIPS and TRICKS:
- Buy a super cheap sprinkler. I got a sprinkler at Walmart a few days ago that looked pretty much identical to this except it was $3.
- Use Dish soap and LOTS of it
- Make sure to supervise your kids, the trampoline gets very slippery and I would hate for someone to get hurt doing this.
- Don't Touch The Ice!!: In this game put ice cubes on the trampoline. Have everyone jump at the same time and try not to touch the ice. If you touch it your out!
- Slide Tag: This game is just like your average game of tag EXCEPT everyone must have at least three of their appendages touching the trampoline at all times. This adds a fun unusual twist to the game and is also safer than playing tag the normal way.
- Slip War: Take turns seeing which person can do the most epic "slip" in the soap, it's sounds boring but my siblings got a kick out of it.
That's pretty much it, feel free to comment if you have any other tips, tricks, or games that aren't already up there.
