10 Awesome Things to Do with Pool Noodles You’ll Wish You Knew Sooner

10 Awesome Things to Do with Pool Noodles You’ll Wish You Knew Sooner

The kids may be back at school, but that doesn’t mean that summer is over! If, like many families, you stretched the budget to take your kids out during their six week break to fun places, you might be looking for cheap ways to entertain them closer to home. I know that I am. Even my grocery bill almost doubled over the school holidays. Do kids ever stop eating?

Anyhoo, with that in mind, I’ve put together 10 awesome things you can do with pool noodles. If you don’t have any lying around you can pick them up for   next to nothing. For example, the kids and I picked some pool noodles up a few weeks ago at our local Cheap as Chips store for just $3 each.  They also come in packs of 3 pool noodles with 3 connectors for $8 if you want to get creative and come up with some ideas of your own!

The great thing is that the following pool noodle ideas provide double the fun! Kids can help with the craft side of things, helping to constructing the games and decorate the structures, and then use them for hours of fun with family and friends.

(No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
