Looking for a way to show your spirit on July 4th?  Check out the two awesome FREE 4th of July graphics that 12 Months of Fun has released.  You can print these on transfer paper and add to your own tee!  I love the two designs (Flag & Star) they have for you to download for FREE!

 

With the temps hitting 90 degrees this week… I did some looking around for some water fun.  I found some great ideas and wanted to make the one Simple Simon & Co but they did not have very detailed instructions at all.. So being that we are kinda handy.. We set off to Home Depot, and I am pretty happy with our results.  Colin loves it even more!  To make this fun project it only costs $8.00 or less at Home Depot (I am sure Lowe’s etc are similar).

We only used the glue on one piece so that we can easily store for next summer.  This beats buying the kid sprinklers in store that are pricey and seem to last only a summer or less!

*NOTE* I have the exact measurements for the PVC Pipe cuts… If your super friendly…Maybe you can get the associate at your Home Improvement Store to help you make those cuts (Save a bit of time and money if you do not have a saw).
