water slide

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


a water slide made from tarpaulin


big tarpaulin, wasking up liquid (LOTS), hose pipe


beavers slide along tarpaulin on soapy water

For scouts: use 25m+ of strong builders plastic sheeting, preferably on a campsite with a slight downhill. Use hike tent pegs (hammered down to ground level), pushed through a folded-over edge of the plastic, to hold down edges of tarpaulin. See who can slide the furthest from the start. Long run-ups work well :-)

Have towels around for smaller scouts who may get cold quickly, and water to wash people's eyes/faces if they get covered in soap suds. Check the ground for lumps/stones first...
