Who loves Summer?! This family sure does. With a long Winter ahead, we spend as much time outdoors as we can all Summer long. We are lucky enough to live on a big hill, a big long one. So, we thought, since we use that baby for tobogganing on the snow… why not DIY a giant slip n’ slide out in the sun?
Oh yeah! I said, slip n’ slide! Are you having childhood flashbacks? Watch my brand new YouTube video to see how it all went down…
We grabbed a box of marine boat wrap (they use it to shrink-wrap boats before going into storage). It is essentially a very thick poly product, doesn’t easily puncture, stretch or tear. This thing is 40 feet wide, and 125 feet long… you can get some real mileage out of your turn! (This post may contain affiliate links.

Roll that sucker down the hill, and unfold it to maximum size…
Secure the top corners and edges of your slip n’ slide with tent pegs. All that’s left to do is squeeze a little dish soap on the slide, and turn on the water. A simple home sprinkler will do.
Grab your family and friends, get some party snacks, and have a day full of fun!
