How to make a backyard water blob

A lot of my real-life friends (a.k.a. Not My Blog Peeps) joke about how they pin all the live-long day but they rarely make any of the projects they see on Pinterest.

I’m not sure what that would feel like, but I suppose they would save themselves a lot of time and money, but also have a life that’s very lacking in hilarious Pinterest fails (and Pinterest wins)?

I’m a contributor for an amazing new parenting magazine called Family Matters, and my column is called “This DIY House” (my clever editor knows about my YHL obsession and came up with the name — isn’t it perfect?).

For each issue, I choose a kid-friendly DIY project and explain how to make it. I also put together a fun video that breaks down the steps, and it always includes cameos of C and D.

This month’s topic? How to make a backyard water blob!

See the full tutorial

There are a few tutorials floating around on Pinterest, but I found the steps about making the seal kind of confusing. So I hope the video makes it clear. Shoutout to Darling Husband for his mad ironing skillz.

I’d love it if you popped over to the magazine’s website and read the full tutorial. It’s such a fun project, yours kids will love it, and you won’t need to water your lawn for two weeks. Maybe three.


So what do you think?
