Playing with Pool Noodles {circles}

Our shape for September was the circle. Finally I got some pool noodles to cut up and use for activities (.50 each at Big Lots!) They can easily be cut with a sharp knife. We used them for stacking:

The baby filled the shopping cart and moved them to the table, emptying the cart and refilling it:Baby Playing with Pool Noodles

The older ones discovered this on their own – the filled the noodles with the colored pasta:Filling Pool Noddles

We tried threading them onto a string.Threading Pool Noodlesand then circle painting:circle paintings

What does this remind you of? Dunkin Donuts! Our colors for September were brown & pink. I decided we’d also use orange and then thought the colors and shape were looking a bit familiar…yes we have a Dunkin Donuts in Janesville and Brett is a fan of the strawberry glazed donuts!


What a fun, versatile, inexpensive material to work with!

Here are some more fun activities that use pool noodles:
