    I just take a lambar nipple with me and fit thin wall tubing to the inside circle. Cut 5/8th inch holes into any bucket, and tubing to fit from the nipple and to curl around the inside of the bottom of the bucket. Don't cut your tubing too short otherwise the kids will be really old before they finish lambars. Vicki

    My tubing that fits into the "lambar" nipples is 1/4'' X 1/16 ID vinyl (the 1/16 is how thick it is, the 1/4 is the diameter). If you are at a hardware store I believe they would considering air hose.. My hubby says they even carry it at NAPA.
