Lawn slippy

With the weather set fair for the next few days, it's the perfect time to set up a home-made water slide.

Get the largest smooth tarpaulin, groundsheet or roll of heavy duty polythene you can find and spread it out on the lawn, checking first that there are no stones or other sharp objects underneath. (If your lawn has a slight slope, so much the better!) Hang a hosepipe, if possible on a fine spray or mist setting, above the sheeting, securely fastened to a washing line or tree. Then give the sheeting a generous squirt of no-tears shampoo and slide away!

To minimise the risk of accidents, agree rules in advance (e.g. one slider at a time, no pushing and no jumping) and ensure adult supervision at all times.
