Step 1: Gather It Up

Im not sure why i had a old waterbed mattress ,but this one had a hole in it.

Step 2: Cut Longways

Step 3: Cut the Side and One End

Step 4: Lay It Out Smooth Side Up

Step 5: Turn the Other Peice Onside Out

This will become the water pool at the end. Or cut it and make a longer slide.

Step 6: Add Noodles

Add some noodles to hold the pool. Tape the slide to the pool. Use other noodles to bumper the the slide so that water runs into the pool.

Step 7: Side Away

Add a hose or sprinkler to the end with the spout . RUN JUMP AND SLIDE.
