The PVC Pipe Project

My husband took all the kids to Lowe's the other day while I went for a physical. They came home with PVC pipes, connectors, and sprinkler heads. They worked together and sawed the pipes, drilled holes in some caps, glued on the connectors, etc.

What did they make? A really cool sprinkler/play thing to run through. One that can be changed anytime. In fact, they had to think about what to put where to ensure enough water pressure for all of their sprinkling sites. They set it up today when we had some friends over for a visit. There was water squirting out of maybe 5 different spots. They put a piece of poly on the grass and put this contraption as a sort of bridge to go under.

It was really cool. And, the best part is that they can create different things every time they use it!

I am so not able to picture this. Since you have tons of spare time, could you take a pict to post?

P.S. but it sounds very cool.
