Summer is just around the corner, although it is pouring down with rain in the UK whilst I am writing. Last year Adam’s favourite summer activity was our DIY water wall.
It was made from recycled plastic bottles so it didn’t cost us anything to make. Adam spent many happy hours playing and experimenting with different ways to get the water to fall through the bottles .
If you are looking to create your own water wall this summer then we have just the thing for you. Here are our Top 10 Summer Water Walls:
If you do not have a suitable wall in your garden then do not despair. It is possible to create a water wall without a wall! Happy Hooligans has a fantastic solution and it looks really impressive too. Still Playing School has even created a homemade portable water wall – you will never guess what they used!
If you manage to get your hands on a peg board (I am still looking for an affordable version in the UK) then Teaching Mama has a fantastic water wall involving pool noodles. Or Mama OT has created a peg board water wall combining recyclables and pool noodles. Things To Share and Remember has even incorporated a hose pipe into their water wall.
If you are like me and can not get hold of a peg board then Frugal Fun 4 Boys has a wonderful alternative. Their water wall can be rebuilt too so the possibilities are endless. We love the simplicity of the easy DIY water wall from Toddler Approved. It is so easy that a young child can create it themselves.
If it gets too hot this summer why not bring the water play indoors? Growing A Jeweled Rose has am effective bath tub water wall – perfect for any weather!
