It seems to be all the rage these days, people are getting crafty with pool noodles and making up some really fun games for the whole family. There are quite a few ideas you can use to make some games before you arrive and have on hand just in case of rain or for spending some quiet time at the campsite.
Pool Noodle Basketball Hoops – This will keep the kids active and won’t damage the RV. They will enjoy testing their skill and will be able to come and go when they want because the game can be left up for the duration of your stay. You simply glue pool noodles, of varying sizes into a circle and tape them to the wall. The kids can make up games by getting different points for making a basket in each hoop.
Pool Noodle Race Track – You know they love their cars and this race track will be a blast. You just cut a pool noodle in half, lengthwise, and glue them together along the long edge. Now you have two race tracks for a good competition.
Pool Noodle Swords – Every kid loves to play sword fight and they can when the swords are made from these pool noodles. No one will get hurt and they can battle away all afternoon.
Pool Noodle Mr. Potato Head – A pretty crafty idea, this one is. You can cut a pool noodle into a variety of sizes and, using golf tees, create a whole range of cute characters. The material is soft enough for the little ones to use and will give them a chance to stretch their imagination. It’s also easy to carry this around in a small bag or box for easy access.
There is plenty to do when you’re camping with us but, just in case, these are some ideas to have fun with the kids.
