Craft Corner: Make an Easy Pool Noodle Sprinkler

☀️ A Cool Craft for a Hot Summer Day

By Mary Shoemaker May 20, 2020

One of our favorite ways to cool off on hot summer days is with a homemade Pool Noodle Sprinkler. It's easy, takes less than 15 minutes to make, and uses items you probably already have lying around your house.

Plus, the kids can help, so be sure to get them involved and make this a family activity.

Watch this quick 60-second video for details or read below for instructions.

What You Need:

  • Pool noodle
  • Heavy duty tape
  • Wine cork
  • Golf tees (one for each child who wants to help)
  • Plastic straws (optional)

What You Do:

1.) First use the wine cork to plug the end of the pool noodle.

2.) Cover it with tape to prevent any water leakage.

3.) Use a golf tee to poke lots of holes in the pool noodle (the kids can help!). For a longer water stream, insert straws into the holes.

4.) Finally, insert the hose into the opposite end and turn on the water. These sprinklers can work hanging or lying on the ground, so play around to see what your family likes best.
