Outside of water balloons, watering cans and play pools, what other ideas are there for refreshing the kids on a hot day? My kids want more - something to make themselves, now... 

That's when our faithful internet comes in handy. I found these DIY water games we can build ourselves, ranging from simply grabbing a sponge and water to building structures with pvc pipes. This summer is going to be fun for all of us.
