Kids and Sprinklers for Summer Fun

About a decade ago I was looking for something to do and saw a lawn sprinkler at a craft show made of copper tubing.  "I can do that" I said and I did, with a little help from a neighbor who did a small bit of soldering for me as me and a soldering iron is not good combination.  I bent the pipe into the shape of the butterflies.


Here's the sprinkler now, all black from age but still works just fine.  My grandkids loved playing in it.


Needing something else to do this week I recreated the sprinkler in Inkscape, added some children (silhouettes) and viola a nice design for scrapbooks, or summer party invites.

Just one example of how I use it.


I am providing an svg file with just the sprinkler, water, and the children so you can be creative and DIY.   
I'm also adding this photo if you are the "just print it" kind....like me these days.
