Pool noodles are a wonderful and inexpensive way to have fun in the pool. But if you’re looking for ways to get more out of them than simply using them as a floatation device, here are some fresh innovative ideas on how you can re-invent them in your own Houston backyard living environment:
The Backyard Obstacle Course
This is perfect for those hot days when people are eager to dive into the cool pool water! Using chairs, ladders, tables, and anything else you can think of, pool noodles can be set across items so that kids (and adults!) need to jump over, crawl under, or even climb through pool noodles. You can also lay them on the water so that contestants have swim under, dive over, or even use them to float or swim to the other end of the pool to complete the course.
Noodle Card Games
Noodles are a great way to create your very own floating card holders. Simply take a box cutter and slice the noodle into sections that will be large enough to hold a full hand of cards. Then, carefully cut a slit into the top of the noodle so that the cards can be slid and securely held
Pool B-Ball Hoops
Forget investing a ton of cash into buying your own backyard basketball hoop. Pool noodles are a great way to create inexpensive basketball hoops that you can either set up beside the pool, or – if the tape holds up – within the pool. All you need is a noodle and some duct tape. Simply bring both ends of the noodle together so that a circle is formed, tape it all the way around with duct tape, and voila! You now have your very own aquatic basketball court.
TIP: These floating hoops are also great for diving games and games that require aiming skills.
