I love it when the stores start to bring out pool noodles! I don’t know the last time I used one just to swim with…I’m always thinking of fun new ways to use them! Today I’m sharing my favorite pool noodle activities for kids. There are so many ways to use them!
This summer we made a sprinkler using a pool noodle. We started with poking holes in the noodle using a knife. (I did this part!) Then I cut off a small part of the end and used that piece to plug one end of the noodle. I stuck a hose on the other side of the pool noodle. Once it was all set up, I turned the hose on and we had our sprinkler!
