It's time to #ThinkOutsideTheToyBox! This week, we are re-purposing pool noodles and turning them into amazing, new activities! We used our to make:
Pool Noodle Bubble Blowers are easy to make and a great summertime activity!
- Assorted pool noodles
- A couple of cake pans or pie plates
- Bubble solution (Store bought or homemade)
- A serrated knife
Simply cut the pool noodles into various length pieces, fill up the pans or plates with bubble solution and ENJOY!
This is a fun and exciting thing for a family to enjoy together. We had such a great time making bubbles!
Once the kids were done with bubbles, I added a second surprise activity!
Pool Noodle Painting!
I whipped up some sidewalk paint by mixing 1/3 cup of All Purpose Flour with food coloring and water. I just add food coloring and water slowly until I get the desired color and “finger paint” like texture. Remember, you can always add more, but you can't take away.
The kids loved painting as well as blowing bubbles. I would say that our re-purposing of pool noodles into Pool Noodle Bubble Blowers and Pool Noodle Painting was a success! These are fantastic sensory activities for kids of all ages!
