Pool Noodle Bubble Blowers!

Looking for a fun way to blow bubbles this summer? Try these awesome Pool Noodle Bubble Blowers!

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:

#ThinkOutsideTheToyBox and use some pool noodles to make these fun Pool Noodle Bubble Blowers! They are a great idea for spring fun!

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!

  11. Whaaat? This is brilliant. My kids are obsessed with everything bubbles. Those pool noodles come in handy for many things!

  12. R.F. Dietz says:

    There are so many freaking things you can do with those dang noodles! I saw one life hack post that involved putting it under a sheet for a toddler who falls out of bed at night. Instant bumper guard!

  18. They do! They are pretty useful items! I love that you can find them at the dollar store too!

  19. Catherine Holt says:

    That looks like tons of fun. Cheap and easy too! Thanks for linking up to Snickerdoodle Sunday! – Kristina

  24. I knew I had seen you do something with pool noodles! Our pool noodle sprinkler was fun. I saw it on another blog somewhere, but I don't remember the link. IT was just the right kind of water for my 4 year old to not get mad about getting wet.

  25. It was super fun and SUPER cheap thanks to the dollar store!

  26. That sprinkler is so cool! I am making one for my kids this weekend!

  27. Michelle Furlong says:

    Great idea. Looks like fun! Thanks for sharing

  28. Bre Eggert says:

    So fun! My kids would love this – hopefully they wouldn't inhale the bubbles though (haha!). Thanks so much for sharing at On Display Thursday! We were so happy to have you link up. 🙂

  29. Melissa Hopper says:

    I am going to have to try this one! My little man loves bubbles

  30. Nice think about the pool noodles, is it is not as easy for them to eat/lick the bubbles!

  31. It was so much fun! My daughter loved dancing in the bubbles!

  32. IT was so much fun to do! The bubbles were great and the sidewalk paint was so easy to make!

  33. Cut em up and use them! I like to get as much out of things as I can!

  34. Jennifer - The Deliberate Mom says:

    Such fun and so clever! I would have never thought of using pool noodles this way.

    I love sidewalk paint!

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the SHINE Blog Hop).

    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  35. Meghan Brannick says:

    Love the painting idea! After a while those things get pretty roughed up. Once they start breaking down I'm definitely doing this rather than just throwing them away!!

  36. Such a fun and simple idea! Haven't used them like that yet. I have used them to wrap around the door to keep the kids from slamming it, though!

    Stopping in from Sharefest!

  37. Jennifer Humphries says:

    So fabulous! Love this 🙂

  38. Nancy Man says:

    Love both of these ideas. My sister was just gifted a pair of used pool noodles by a neighbor, but her girls already have plenty of floaty-type things for the pool. I'll have to let her know about these ideas — she might want to re-purpose those noodles.

  39. I am chuckling, my kids would have loved these ideas, never thought of using them to blow bubbles. Thanks for sharing on Weekends Are Fun!! Enjoy your weekend!!!

  40. My kids really enjoyed it! Thank you for hosting, Karren!

  41. Good idea! We've been experimenting with all kinds of different makeshift bubble blowers around here and this one looks like our next try!

  42. Carmody Tisdale says:

    Brilliant idea! Thanks for linking up to "On Display Thursday".

  43. Thank you so much, Kim! I love when you stop by! I will definitely link up tonight!

  44. I love the bubble idea! That doesn't meant hat I don't think the other idea isn't pretty cool too. I have a couple of noodles and with all the other things we have to drag with us for all of the babies, the pool noodles often get left behind. I love the idea to repurpose them! Thanks for sharing with Creative Style!

  46. My kids love bubbles, so this was the way to go for us!
