Pool Noodles Can Make Unique Toys and Gift Ideas

Pool Noodle Sailboat

From Raising Arizona Kids

Some of the world’s greatest and longest lasting inventions are the simplest.  The pool noodle, that ubiquitous foam tube with a hollow center is no exception.  Who would have thought that this simplistic creation would literally be everywhere?  As is usually the case, these simplistic inventions spawn derivative inventions, including  ways to adapt these inventions for other useful purposes.  This post from Raising Arizona Kids presents one such use of the pool noodle, the pool noodle sailboat.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Arizona kids spend a lot of the summer in the water. Whether it’s pool time or tub time, they will love playing with a sailboat they have made themselves.
Use a serrated knife to cut a 10- to 14-inch length of pool noodle. Slice it in half lengthwise to create the hull of your ship.
Cut two triangles from craft foam to create sails. Thread the foam sails onto a barbecue-skewer mast and stick into noodle with cut side down.
