Cool as a Cucumber Mister
What you'll need:
- 1 cucumber
- Large measuring cup
- 1 lemon
- 100 percent aloe vera gel
- Fresh mint leaves
- Mini spray bottles
- Bucket filled with ice
- Peel and slice the cucumber.
- Add to a blender with 1/3 cup water and blend thoroughly.
- Strain the mixture through cheesecloth and a strainer into a measuring cup.
- Add a squeeze of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel and whisk together.
- Put some mint leaves in each mini spray bottle then pour some of the mixture into each.

Hula Hoop Sprinkler
What you'll need:
- Old hula hoop
- Garden shears
- Brass garden hose adapter
- PVC TEE adapter (we used an LFA-677 adapter)
- Duct tape
- Cut the hula hoop at the seams with garden shears.
- Drill holes all the way around the hula hoop, about 6 inches apart from each other.
- Twist the brass garden hose adapter and PVC TEE adapter together.
- Fasten the adapter parts to the hula hoop, leaving the hose connector open.
- Securely wrap duct tape around the hula hoop and adapter parts (tightly, so water doesn't escape!).
- Attach the hose…and let it rip!
