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.

At Little White House Blog Lauren and her husband Brett show you how, with a little help from son Baker. Check out Lauren’s Instagram for more on the family's farmhouse life.
