The DIY waterslide is very simple. All you need is a basic tarp, cheap shampoo or soap (the kind that does not burn your eyes) and water. Lay the tarp evenly on the ground or on a slight hill, make sure there are no rocks or sharp objects under the tarp which could cause injury. Cover the tarp with the shampoo or soap, spray water all over the tarp and your DYI waterslide is ready for sliding! Rewet the slide as needed. You can optionally place an inflatable pool or cushion at the end of your slide to make a safer and a more comfortable stop.
Even though it is summer time and you want to have fun, remember……safety first. Kids, make sure you have your parent’s permission to make the slide and do not slide more than one person at a time to avoid a collision. Parents, never leave kids unattended! A DYI waterslide can be a safe, inexpensive and enjoyable way to have fun in the sun!
