Pool Noodles are cheap and easy to find at the dollar store, and can be used for a number of different fun, high-energy activities. Not all kids have the ability to sit down for a movie, or participate in a game with too many rules or instructions. With noodles, the possibilities are endless! They’re also easy to cut to any size, and they can be used for a number of crafts - The best part about noodles is that they’re soft! Since they’re a spongy material, there’s no need to worry about injuries.

Be sure to double check it for any belongings or open drinks, and then fold the edges inward until you can pick it up and put the whole thing right in the trash. The table underneath is clean and the whole process only takes a few minutes!
