Using a pool noodle to create a racetrack for marbles. Would be great for science when working on speed or friction...
Put it together: Duct-tape six rings to one another, then tape them to thicker (3 1/2-inch-wide) hollow pool noodle posts. Stand it upright: Hammer two 1/2-inch dowels (ours were 48 inches long) securely into the ground and slide the posts on top.
Bamboo Stacking Game: An even number of green pool noodles (10 or 12), knife (maybe don't use your fancy one), Permanent markers in shades of brown & green. Take turns adding layers to the stack, or simply play as a one-person challenge game.
Life-Size Pool Noodle Ponies, why not act out a story while riding these beauties? (A child who knows these props await will be well-motivated to write a horse-themed story!) Positive use of all that beautiful energy!
