During the summer we tend to spend as much time as possible in the water. We love swimming in our family. I am a self-admitted “big kid”. I like to play games and goof around. Toys that help you soak someone else with water are always fun!
Check this out: I found a toy called Geyser Gushers at my local toy store. That link is straigth to Amazon, where they are also available. This toy reminds me of one of those orange construction pylons. It is c0ne-shaped with a 1″ diameter hole at the top, and it has handles at the wide part of the cone so you can hold it. If you learn how to use it properly, you can shoot a HUGE 1″ jet of water about 30 feet. You’ll soak anyone around you. What an awesome toy for the pool or the beach.
I’m thinking there *has* to be an easy way to make these at home using some kind of stiff plastic. But I haven’t figured out how to do it quite yet. If I can’t make my own, I’m going to buy these for the next time we take the kids away for a sunny vacation in the middle of winter.
