Inspired by all the great water wall projects out there, I’ve been saving recyclables and getting ideas for our water wall. When it came down to actually making it, I just started attaching containers with zip ties without much of a plan, but that’s just how I work sometimes. We’re very happy with how it turned out!
I need to decide where exactly to put it. I like it leaned up next to the little climber so the kids can pour water down from above too. It gives a whole different perspective.
I have a ton of play dishes that are in storage, meant to be rotated from time to time so I decided to use some of them in this project.
Couple of things I discovered:
- I was aware of this… Pegboard probably isn’t going to hold up to getting wet. We’ll see. For this summer it will be fine. Not sure if it will last longer than that or not.
- I should have kept some bottle caps! The kind that flip open with a spout, like the syrup bottle. The caps add another fun element because the bottle can be filled and then drained when the cap is opened. I’m almost done with some Ketchup so I’ll keep the cap to put on that bottle too.
- It’s fun, fun, fun!
**I had to screw a board to the back to keep the pegboard straight/stiff otherwise it curved in. Perfect now!
