School is already out in some areas and out in the next couple weeks in the rest, the pools and splash pads are open and I’m thinking of pool noodles. Not to swim with, but to make things with. They’re colorful, cheap, and big, so you can make many projects out of just one. Sounds like the perfect Summer craft item to me. I have gathered some of my favorite Pool Noodle Projects and Activities to share with you. What will you make first?
