Fun With Pool Noodles


Gone are the days when a pool noodle was something you only used in the pool.
We don’t even have a pool, yet I have a pool noodle…


Here are some handy uses for pool noodles, some of them I have tried, and others I really need to try.




Cot rail cover (BabyBumpApp) – I had a cot biter,there are little teeth marks all around the top of our cot because of that! This would have been great to do, and I will definitely do it next time around. I especially like this as it’s a no sew DIY – which is even better as I don’t have a sewing machine.
I have also seen an alternative to this where you take fleece and cut tabs in it, and the knot it underneath - It looks super cute too. 







Trampoline Safety (A Thrifty Mom)– We don’t have a trampoline, but plan on getting one later this year, and this will be on my to do list. I would personally prefer to have all black pool noodles, but I don't think you can get them in black. I just think the multi coloured ones are too “in your face” (personal preference).





Pool Noodle Door Stop (Red Delicious Life) This is a serious must for any home - they are a lifesaver, and have saved, and am sure will save many sore fingers.





Bed Rails (Small Fine Print) - I have tried this, and not sure how I would rate it. Now my noodle was bent, so it kept curving under the sheets, so that could have been one problem, and secondly I used it in a cot, and not in the bed. May have to revisit it now that my son is in a bed. Definitely would save you having to buy s safety side though. I like how these ones are therapeutic too.


Water Wall (Teaching Mamma) - I shared this in my summer bucket list post, and think its a fantastic use of pool noodles.






Other fun things to do with pool noodles include:

Bath Time Water Wall - Bath activities for kids

Floor Lamp stand - Shut the front door, how cool is this Rope lamp from The Lily Pad cottage?

Pool Noodle Wreath - Fox Hollow Cottage, not sure I would do the whole "flip flop" thing, but it would be a fab idea for a Christmas wreath.

Pool Noodle Abacus - Happy Hooligans


What do you use your pool noodles for?

  1. We use to bash each other with pool noodles back in the day. They're great as bed rails and protectors. Heard a few people use them for safety reasons.
