Make a SPRINKLER from an old POOL NOODLE

Whoever the guy was that created the infamous Pool Noodle…is a genius!  I mean, these noodles are not only used as little flotation toys but I have seen them used in a trillion other ways.  And who doesn’t have a few of them laying around, just in case you head to the pool/lake/beach?  (Well, in case you don’t…have you been to the Dollar Store lately?  There are tons of those colorful little noodles, ready for you to snatch up for, yep, a $1!)

So, go on and grab one of those unused Pool Noodles and turn it into something that will help you beat the heat this summer…..

….and will give you and the kiddos something fun to make!

And just for fun, a little video to show you the sprinkler in action…and how quickly it can be made!  (You can watch with the sound on or off….either way, you’ll get the idea!)  CLICK the video below.

    Such a fun idea!! Would love to use for parties :)

    This is fantastic. We go through at least one sprinkler per summer because they’re so darn cheap they never work. It’s nice to have an easy $1 option!

    Hmm. What if we didn’t want to duct tape to the hose itself? Disaster?

    1. Miguel says:

      You could get a hose clamp at Home Depot or Lowe’s and use that to clamp it down….it may still leak some and if a kid snags a foot on it they could get cut….they may have other things that may be safer as well

    Such a great idea! I have pool noodles laying around the garage from a beach vacation we took last year and haven’t used them since….now I know what to do with them! Love the video too, so cute that your little boy was carrying the baby through the sprinkler! Thanks for all you do!
