Splish Splash Sunday: Make Your Own Water Slide!

I'm so glad we finally had good weather here in Michigan today.  I actually H.A.T.E. Winter; people that have lived here for 50 some years seem to forget how to drive in snow and they're the ones you have to watch out for.  I for sure stay off the road on the first snowfall of the season...the "Driving Crazies" seems to hit everyone and they're all over the road.  When I make a million dollars on TpT, I'm moving from Michigan for sure!  (So that means I'll probably be stuck here for the rest of my life.)

Any-hoo, yesterday was one of the first good, hot days we've had here in West Michigan.  So Garyn and I tried a new craft that I knew he'd love.  Garyn has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) along with his Autism, which means his senses are all out of whack.  All five of his senses are "hyper" active, so they are all very extreme.  For example, he can smell things that you and I can't smell.  He can't eat in the lunchroom at school, because of all the different smells.  It gives him a massive headache and sends him into a downward spiral.  So he has to eat by himself with his aide everyday.  Another example, is his hearing.  He can also hear things that we can't hear.  So on the bus, he has to wear headphones because the sounds of the kids and the bus hurts his ears.  Poor thing, I can't even imagine what it's like for him.  But he loves to TOUCH water, something with his sense of touch?  So this craft was right up his alley!  I'm sure your kids will love it too...

Do you think your kids would like something like this? You could make it longer by putting two tarps together, but we have a smaller yard so I stuck with one.  What kind of water fun activities do you do at your house?

Have a Wonderful Sunday,
