Plastic play slide works in the kiddie pool, too
Here's how Duane upped the fun quotient on the kiddie pool:
In the market for a new kiddie wading pool this season? Instead of getting one with a teeny little slide built in, get a regular one and then get a standalone slide, like the sort from Little Tikes. Position it with the ladder on the outside of the pool, bottom of slide on the inside, and presto, instant pool slide. You can still play with the slide on days when you don't have the pool out, too - such as by setting it up in the middle of the sprinkler.
Great idea, however I'd put some non-skid tape on the ladder footholds (if it isn't already there). Kids tend to run around the pool and slide, and I imagine it would get slippery when wet.
