Here are some pool noodle projects great for the kids — for play and home decor!

Many parents warn their children about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Fewer parents, though, remember to warn kids against games that are so risky they can lead to injury.

Children frequently keep details about these games under wraps. As a parent, you probably won’t hear about them until someone in the community is rushed to the emergency room.

But the most fun games always seem to be the most accident-prone! See, kids love doing what the adults are doing. Admit it, even when we were kids, we couldn’t wait to do the things our parents are doing! The boys love sword fights and martial arts, while most girls want to be like mum.

1. Light Sabers

The fun of playing with a lightsaber can be great for Star Wars fans or anyone who enjoys cool weapons. There are a few easy lightsaber options that you can make yourself for cheap, even if you don’t want to splurge on one at the store. No matter what you choose to use, either a pool noodle or some construction paper will have you battling in no time!

2. Foam Sword

Playing nicely and sharing can be boring for our kids, but we encourage them to do so. To play effectively, kids need to imagine they are pirates or knights of old who have battles and adventures.

If the game gets too lively or out of hand, homemade foam swords for kids are a wonderful way to help your child harness their imagination. The best way to ensure everyone has a good time is to make a bunch of foam swords.

3. Oodles of Fun

Kids can use Oodles of fun to improve their essential movement skills and motor skills, such as jumping, hopping, and throwing.  It is important for kids to establish these foundations before participating in sports and participating in physical activities. Be practical and keep it simple. 

This collection of games is perfect for birthday parties, family gatherings, or just to have around the house. We can construct several games if we put some imagination and doodling into them, like ring toss, hopscotch, waterfall curtain, javelin throw, and bean bag toss.

4. Indoor Basketball

Are you looking for a place to play basketball (or, if no one is watching, your office)? A hoop that fits in any space can be made in two different ways. You can do both yourself relatively easily.

5. Race Track

Your children will enjoy racing toy cars around a backyard race track if you create one for them. A concrete track can be laid by more ambitious DIYers for their kids to play on for many years. You can also lay some paving bricks to create a track if you want something a little less permanent. Additionally, you can race cars with a pool noodle by cutting it in half.

6. Easy Nunchucks

Often simply known as “nunchucks,” nunchaku are Okinawan martial arts weapons made of two sticks attached to one another by a rope or chain. In addition to improving your posture and developing faster hand movements, Nunchaku makes a great training weapon.

7. Candle Holder

With some snacks, a cozy blanket, and some Netflix surfing, you can beat a bad mood or a dull day, but it eventually stops soothing! You can fix that by lighting a bunch of candles you made yourself. It will serve as a lifelong reminder to keep going and beat the odds.

8. Pool Noodle Lollipop Decor

Whether you’re looking for a last-minute Christmas decoration or you’re planning ahead for a birthday party, this simple DIY decor idea is perfect. It’s quick and easy to do, so you won’t have to spend hours creating something elaborate. Plus, it won’t make too much of a mess, so you can relax and enjoy the party without having to worry about cleaning up afterward. The trick is particularly useful if you don’t plan on using your pool noodles next summer and already have a few lying around.

9. Holiday Decor

Looking for some fun and festive DIY holiday decor for your New Year’s Eve feast or party? Why not try making your own decorations? It’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit and add a personal touch to your celebration. Plus, it’s a lot cheaper than buying store-bought decorations. There are tons of great DIY holiday decorating ideas out there. You can make everything from banners and garlands to centerpieces and table runners. An ornament or styrofoam modeled after a firecracker will make a nice display in your backyard. So get creative and have fun! Your New Year’s Eve party will be that much more special with homemade decorations.

10. Pool Noodle Olympics

A few Olympic-themed activities would be fun to do with my kids. Getting them involved in the games is important to us as well. With pool noodles, we can host our own backyard Olympics – or sunroom – right at home.

With these Olympic activities for kids, our kids love pretending to host their own Olympic Games!

Our kids love pretending to host their own Olympic Games with these fun Olympic activities!
