It sure is hot by now where we live! I don’t like letting the boys stay indoors in the a/c for too long though – they’re young boys and they need to get some fresh air and exercise, is my take. Still, on days when it’s real hot outside, the only thing that makes them stay out there is water play. Here’s a great idea for any family for the summer time. The only requirements is for them to have a lawn, or a nice large paved patio that can get sprinkled with water.
The SW Express Geyser Blast Sprinkler can be attached to just about any garden hose. Turn the water on and watch it roll about and spray water all over the place. Where the water streams will hit next will keep the kids guessing and jumping around. Expect a lot of laughter screams in this game!
IMO, this makes for a perfect gift to any family with kids during hot summer days! Click to buy the Express Geyser Blast Sprinkler on Amazon.com
The Green Angle –
I’m afraid there’s not a whole lot of positive things to be said about this product. It is made of plastic, and it’s not recycled plastic, although it can possibly be recycled. It’s not very expensive, which makes me doubt its durability, especially considering the amount of exposure to the sun it will be getting. Last, but not least, it can be seen as an encouragement to waste water, which in some climates and areas, may not be an eco-friendly thing.
To make this product “greener” you could, make sure that it is stored in good conditions to give it a longer lifespan. You could also encourage gifting the sprinkler onwards to another family when the kids get tired of it. Most importantly with this one, make sure that the kids play on a lawn or a place that can use the extra water and balance that out with the water used for lawn irrigation.
