  1. We did this as children back in the 60’s but we also used dish soap to slide better. We had great fun & it is also good for the grass.

  2. So much fun! My parents bought a slip n slide for the grandkids to play with… and it broke the first time they used it. You could have saved them some money! πŸ™‚

  3. I read someplace that you can do the same thing with garbage bags that come attached together in a roll–just unroll and add water. I like the tarp idea though–probably heavier and definitely gives more room for lateral moves!

  4. How fun! And so creative! πŸ™‚ And what a nice long yard! Perfect for slipping and sliding and having fun! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    What a cute idea…that is almost better than a regular slip and slide because there is more space to slide around. πŸ™‚
