Since pool noodles came along several years ago, they have added a lot of fun to the swimming experience. We keep them on our boat, take them to the lake, float with them at the pool. Such a simple thing, really. Lately I’ve seen some awesome ideas for using pool noodles in alternate ways. Check these out!

Add a few balloons – and look at all these giggles you can have! From Parents.com
I saw this in the Family Fun May 2012 issue. To make these, you simply put 2 chopsticks in the ground, then slide the noodles overtop. Then you can jump over them, crawl through them, use them as goals to kick a ball through.
Can you say, FUN?!
And lastly, my husband’s brillant idea – slide a pool noodle on our tire swing to protect the hands from rope burn!
I would suggest if you see one (or more) of these ideas you LOVE – quickly get to your store before they are gone for the summer! Or if you’re like me, you probably have a few noodles sitting around that you can already use! Do you have any creative ideas of your own?
