This next one will be appreciated by parents and children alike. There are few things more annoying than stubbing your toe on a tiny piece of LEGO that you forgot to pick up, and usually, it’s not just one; it’s a trillion of them! This is why this DIY project will make your life better in more ways than one.
Pick a coffee table in your house with a smooth surface and buy some LEGO bases from their store; in this way, you can simply place any loose LEGO parts on the base and make sure they stay there. It’s also a great way to display whatever LEGO creations your kids made that day.
Here's a pool noodle hack young kids (and their parents) can benefit from! All you'll need for this one are some paper towel holders and, obviously, some holy pool noodles. Take a few different-colored pool noodles and cut them into small rings.
Kids can have an awesome time creating different patterns with the colorful noodle pieces by placing them on top of each other on the paper towel holders! You can add an extra layer of thought by writing letters or numbers on some of the pool noodle pieces and help your kid practice their spelling. Be creative for once. Your children will appreciate it.
As a little kid, one of the best things your parents can allow you to do is go crazy with gouache, painting, and coloring until you get paint all over your clothes. Well, you might want to try and avoid the clothes-staining part, but pool noodles can be a lovely addition to the painting bit!
All you have to do is cut a noodle into relatively small pieces, then dip its end into the paint, and let the kids use it as a doughnut-shaped stamp. It can be far more creative and interesting, and you never know. You might end up discovering the next Picasso in your own house.
Pool Noodle Target
Pool noodles have been scientifically proven to be great for creating all sorts of games and recreational activities! Here's one of them: making a DIY pool-noodle target. This will guarantee hours of fun, for your kids and for the neighbours' kids.
All you need are some pool noodles, tape, and a small piece of ground you could stick the pool noodle poles into for stabilization. It's super simple and you can endlessly play with it. Great! You might have to pack it up just before the winter kicks in unless you think of a way to install one of these indoors too.
