11 Easy Ways to Set Up a Backyard Water Park

It’s hard to deny your water park’s awesome perks: slides, water cannons and dump buckets that make cooling off a total blast are just a few. Making it to the water park to use those splash-tastic perks? It’s not always in the cards for busy families (hello, newborn nap time or meal prep, amirite?). So instead, why not bring those wet and wild features to you with simple-to-set-up activities any parent can rock. Flip through to find your fave.

Make it happen the simple way, spraying an arc each little player can bend under, or take it to the next level with an adjustable PVC pipe version designed by The Pinning Mama, Kimber. We wanna know, how low can you go?
