29. Water Slide
My mother-in-law had one of these. Just a warning for you – all the kids in the neighborhood will be knocking at your door! Kids would peer into the backyard to see all the cousins enjoying this super fun waterslide. I can’t help but be a little jealous of my kids. These great summer products just didn’t exist when I was little. My greatest summer product when I was a kid was the banana slide. A banana slide was a glorified plastic tarp that we sprayed with a banana shaped sprinkler, so we could slip and slide our way down a hill. We usually wound up with a grass stains on the back of our swim suits from sliding off the tarp. This inflatable water slide is a serious upgrade!
30. Bubble Machine
Kids and adults can’t resist popping bubbles. What is it about these little pockets of air that make them so magical? Summer time is full of simple joys and a bubble machine is one of those simple joys. Just fill it up and turn it on and it fills the air with a “Gazillion” bubbles! Instant fun for kids and adults.
31. Movie Projector
It’s on our family’s summer bucket list to set up an outdoor movie theater. We would like to have movie nights outside this summer. We love watching movies on Sunday nights. But in the summer we can’t decide between a family movie night or sitting outside on a nice summer night by the bonfire. Why not have the best of both worlds? This projector will connect with your phone or laptop. So you can stream movies from your favorite apps like Netflix and amazon prime video. Check out the projector we went with to check this off our summer bucket list.
