Play in the Gutter
The only difficult part is dodging cars. It helps to have one child be the look out.
Playing in the gutter has another advantage - it staves off Summer dehydration since there is plenty of secondary water to drink - which we did. Ironically it gave us diarrhea.
|Waiting for the water|
If you're in a city where there's a water restriction, your kids will only be able to play in the gutter after 6pm or before 6am.
