Outrageously FUN Kids Car Wash
Isn’t this kids car wash super cool?!?! It takes less than 2 hours and costs about $35 to make it. Here is how to make it.
Summer STEM Project
- 8x 10 feet 3/4” PVC pipe
- 12 T’s
- 2 crosses
- 7 elbows
- 4 caps
- 1 T with with 2 1” and middle 3/4”
- 1 straight fitting
- 1 female hose adapter (threaded)
- pool noodle
- craft foam, Velcro, and permanent marker (for signs)
- 3 large sponges, 40 feet nylon lawn chair webbing, paper fasteners, and rope (car wash accessories)
You will need to cut the PVC pipe to the following sizes (I wrote size on each piece so we could take it apart at the end of the season and build it again!)
- 22x 30” long
- 1x 5 feet long
- 4x 3 feet long
- 2x 1 feet long
- 3x 6” long
Drill holes for the water to come out! You can do this however you like. We drilled 15 holes (all in a row) each in two of the 3 foot pieces, 3 holes on two of the 30” pieces, and 3 holes in two of the caps.
Now it is time to assemble your wash. We put it together just like Family Fun suggested. Click here for online assembly instructions.
Then it’s time to PLAY!!
And then they wanted to get soaped up to go through!
Even Tinker Bell went through…. but she preferred it as a CAR WASH!
