For the little ones: Pool Noodle Madness


I never thought the 4 year-old hummingbird would go apeshit over pool noodles that I cut up. I saw something on Pinterest that showed cutting up pool noodles and using them with a ball to play bowling.

But as my daughter and I were playing, I discovered pool noodles can become snow, where we made “snow angels”, we built castles, had a pool noodle rain storm, and used them to play construction site.

They have scattered all over the house and we’ve found we can also play binoculars and see how long one stays on the back of our two cats, Penny and Maisy, or on their head before it falls off. What? I never said I was normal.

What you’ll need:

Pool noodles (I used two)

a sharp knife ( I used a large exacto knife)


Pretty simple… I cut the pool noodles up with a length of about 2 1/2 inches long. I stored them in a bag until the next day so I could surprise the hummingbird.

After that, there’s no limit with what your kids can imagine with the pool noodles. Or, your child may give you a “what the fuck are these things and why do you want me to play with these stupid things for?” look.
