We had a blast making these Pool Noodle Boats at last week's Play Date with Fairfield County Moms Blog! This project is a great way to upcycle those pool noodles that have maybe seen a bit too much love this summer.
Water play is a great way to keep everyone cool as the temperature rise. These boats only take a few minutes to make, but will keep everyone happily splashing around on a hot summer's day!
Pool Noodles cut into one inch pieces
Find an adult to cut your pool noodle into once inch thick pieces. We used a regular kitchen knife (pool noodles cut surprisingly easy!)
Use the point of the knife to make a small hole on the top of the pool noodle (this will be where you insert your straw)
Cut the foam sheets into triangles about three inches tall
Cut the straws about three inches tall
Decorate the sail with the foam stickers
Thread the straw through the sail and insert the straw into the hole you created in the pool noodle.
Place your boat into the water!
