If you haven’t noticed yet, pool noodles are not just for summer time fun any more. It is hard for me to pass up a pool noodle that is on sale because I am always thinking, “I bet I could come up with one more thing to do with noodles this year that we haven’t done before!”…
The wonderful thing about noodles is they are soft and light weight so they make a great tool for building and construction outdoors or indoors….
We also explored making different shapes with our noodles.
And how about making a road or racetrack?
