Kid’s Fun: Cool Off with a PVC Sprinkler

What You’ll Need:

  • Four 10-foot long ¾” PVC pipes
  • Four T-joints
  • Four 90-degree elbow joints
  • Three end caps
  • One threaded hose connector (we used a
  • PVC cement
  • Hand saw or jogsaw
  • Drill with 1/16” drill bit
  • Tape measure

Step 1: Have a grown-up make your cuts with the lengths below.

  • 5′ (x4)
  • 4′ (x2)
  • 18″ (x4)
  • 12″ (x2)

Step 2: Drill holes into the two 4′ pieces so the water can come out. We made a zigzag pattern.

Step 3: Go outside or in a well-ventilated area to start gluing. The PVC cement dries very quickly, so you have to work fast!

  • To make the first bottom piece, glue the threaded connector + an 18″ piece + a T-joint + 12″ piece + a T-joint + 18″ piece + an end cap. Make the second bottom piece with the same pieces, but use end caps on both ends.
  • Glue the four elbows onto the tops of the four 5′ pieces. Then glue the two 4′ pieces into the elbows.
  • Glue the top pieces into the T-joints and let everything dry.

Step 4: Hook up the hose and have some fun!
