At the end of the summer we were contemplating what to do with the leftover pool noodles and then discovered that they were on sale for next to nothing at a clearance sale!
Here’s a very simple way to reuse them. Cut notches out of the end using scissors or a serrated knife and make “life size” lincoln logs for the kids to build forts out of! You can store them upright in a box in the corner when they’re not in use.
Cheap, light, easy to clean up. It doesn’t really matter what color they are, you can make rainbow Lincoln logs.
