Pool Noodle Activities

I love summertime!  And I love activities that get my kids outside and active.   These pool noodles activities are perfect for little boys!  Not only can they use up some of their endless energy but you don’ t have to worry about them getting hurt because they are using pool noodles.  When I found pool noodles for sale at the dollar store I was so excited to create some fun games and activities for my kids.  I think the lady that helped me out must have thought I was crazy as she watched me shoving pool noodles into every square inch of my car.  But we fit and I made it home safe.

DIY LEGO Table

Last year for Christmas, Santa brought my older boys a foldable/storable LEGO table and it has had constant use since then.  But, the saying, “Two’s company, three’s a crowd” tends to apply with my three oldest boys and my 5-year-old is normally the third wheel and was feeling a bit left out.  So, Santa did not disappoint this year and brought him his very own DIY LEGO Table.

Build Your Own Tank Craft Giveaway!

I cannot tell you how excited my boys were to open a box from the mail and find this fun Build Your Own Tank craft from CraftProjectIdeas.com!  They were starting to get a major case of end-of-summer boredom and they went right to work building their tank.

I have been really busy the past month preparing for some major exams and my boys were starting to get sick of me being unavailable for the types of projects we normally do so this couldn’t have come at a better time.

CraftProjectIdeas.com has come out with a fun new line of boy crafts (THANK YOU!) that replace the glitter and girlie you find in most project kits with rockets and camouflage.  If you have followed me for any amount of time you will know that one of the reasons I started this blog was to share more craft ideas for boys.

DIY Pool Noodle Goal Post

Goal Post

Last month we threw the Ultimate Sports Party for my now 7-year-old and we had lots of fun using some of the pool noodle activities I shared on the blog last summer as well as this new pool noodle goal post.  I turned to my handy, dandy husband and asked him to come up with some sort of goal post to be used in a field goal kicking competition and this is what he came up with.  (We’re so lucky to have him around. :) )

I’ll try my best to give a good description of how this was made but if I leave something out or don’t explain something very well, leave me a comment and I’ll have my husband answer.  Sound good?
