By  | Last Updated:  

Sure, summer is winding down–but there is still time for the kids to enjoy those lazy, hazy days. If you’ve run through your go-to list of possible activities, I have something new the kids can do. Several somethings and they all use those summertime wonders: pool noodles. Sure, you can use them in the pool, but there are lots of creative ways to have fun with pool noodles. Some involve water, but most of the ideas on this list don’t. Another bonus? You’ll probably find the already inexpensive pool noodles on sale because it is the end of the season!
