Got Cheap Pool Noodles?
Pool noodles are like the simplest yet one of the greatest inventions ever. There are so many uses for a pool noodle. So simple, yet creative, fun and educational! Yes, educational pool noodles. The other day I was out shopping, and there was a ton of summer stuff on clearance.
Sure, it’s slim pickins’ as far as variety, but stuff is soooo cheap. I saw pool noodles for 10 cents. A dime! But I couldn’t think of what I would use a pool noodle for. Even though they were just a dime, I passed. I should have bought those pool noodles in cheap bulk at that price. I had no idea that I would find so many uses for pool noodles.
Creative Pool Noodle Activities
D’oh! I just quickly said to myself “eh, we don’t have a use for them.” Then I started poking around online, because I am not creative. But I know that lots of other moms and teachers are clever at this stuff. Sure enough, when I went back to get them a few days later, they were gone.
Here are the ideas and they should match up with the photo.
