Have a pool noodle or two just laying around?
Surprisingly, I did although we do not have a pool!
I originally was going to use it as a wreath base, but recently I decided to put it to use by cutting it up and making it into a fine motor activity to share with you today!
To make your own, gather:
- pool noodle(s)
- wooden sticks
- knife (for the adult only)
Fun Pool Noodle Activity
Take a sharp knife and cut up the pool noodle into chunks. Feel free to cut up the chunks into smaller pieces, too.
Have a bowl or cup of wooden craft sticks available and start building!
Our wooden craft sticks came from Craftprojectideas.com-- nice for little hands because they had blunted ends, although, Little Sis did manage to break a few trying to poke them into the pool noodle.
