Build a Fun Rolling Pipe Slide For Your Backyard

Rolling Pipe Slide

This rolling pipe slide is not the typical slide found in a typical playground but that makes it more fun!

As a parent, I am constantly looking out for fun activities for the kids. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone.

In our backyard, we have a sandpit, a tepee, and two rubber swings. All these were DIY projects my husband and I made two summers ago. My children were happy with them until they got bored. When I noticed that they didn’t play outside as much anymore, I had to do something.
