Pool Noodle Monsters

When the kids need to keep their hands and minds busy, we’ve got just the thing.

Pool noodles
(cut into 4-6 inch pieces)
Googly eyes
Pom poms
Bendy straws and/
or pipe cleaners
Hot glue gun

Step 1:
Cut 4-6 inch pieces of pool noodle.
We used a kitchen knife to cut pieces.

Step 2:
Use your hot glue to adhere googly eyes, a pom pom nose, and pom pom feet to your pool noodle.

Step 3:
Use scissors to create a hole in each side of the pool noodle. Insert bendy straws or pipe cleaners to form your monster arms.

Step 4:
Add pipe cleaner hair to your monster. Mix this up a little – cut pieces, curl around your finger, etc. You can poke the pipe cleaner into the pool noodle, but we recommend adding a dot of hot glue to keep pieces in place.

Step 5:
Use ribbon to add a bow to
your monster’s hair or
dress him with a bowtie.
