One of my friends posted on facebook that
she had a made a water blob for her kiddos.
It looked like sooooo much fun! 
I did a quick search on Pinterest & found this water blob tutorial.

You’ll need a big roll of plastic sheeting & LOTS of duct tape.

It was soooo easy to make!

First I folded the plastic in half. 
Then I found myself some helpers! 
It was a little breezy! 
So my 4 helpers helped hold down the plastic while I taped the sides. 
You’ll leave a small opening for your water hose.
Stick your water hose in & fill it up.  Tape it shut.
FYI:  You will have some leaking around the edges.
I just went around & patched any leaks
with more tape as the blob was filling.

Then we let the kiddos go wild & crazy!!

  23. @K ben I'm not sure. We had about 10 kiddos on it for the whole afternoon & no big leaks & it didn't burst!

  25. Did it damage the grass underneath? I would love to try this, but my husband freaks about the slip n slide because it kills the grass.

  26. We only used it for one day. So it didn't do any damage to the grass. It just gave it a good watering when we let all the water out. :)

  27. What a fun idea!
