Plastic Bottle Sprinkler


We tried out making a plastic bottle srpinkler today, and it was so easy, quite a bit of fun, and my thirteen year old set it up all by himself! (I hate my kids growing up, but there is definitely something nice about having ones big enough to help out with these projects . . . especially since I'm not all that handy with a drill myself.) 🙂


 Homemade Sprinkler


Here's what you'll need to get started it if you'd like a little frugal summer fun too:

  • plastic bottle (we used a 2-liter bottle)
  • duct tape
  • hose
  • drill to make holes in the bottle
Go HERE for great step-by-step instructions ~ it should take you just a few minutes to set up and my kids loved it!
What ideas will be on you summer to do list this year? I'd love to hear them! You can also check out my summer fun board on Pinterest for more summer fun ideas.

  1. This is awesome…as someone who is looking for low or no cost ways of having fun, this is perfect. I am placing this link onto my web site for divorced and remarried people. This activity is great for my readers with children, because my main goal with my site is to help those going through divorce and remarriage and to do it well. A lot of divorced people, particularly those with small children, don’t have money to do fun things. This goes to show that a person doesn’t need a lot of money to have a blast! Thanks for sharing this…
