To make your own pool noodle sprinkler, I’ve written out the instructions and also included a video below.

Here’s what you need to do:

Pick a noodle.

Pick out your pool noodle.

For this project you’ll need one with a hole in the middle.

It’s o.k. if it’s used, you know. We like to recycle used pool noodles when we can.

Poke Holes

Find something to poke holes in the noodle.

We used a metal skewer (we show you in the Amazon ad below).

Plug it up.

Use some foil or small pieces of another noodle to plug up one end of the noodle.

You have some small pieces left from a previous project, right?

Tape it up.

Cover that end with duct tape, making sure to seal it well.

You don’t want water leaking out the end, you want it to come out from the holes you created.

Add a water source.

Place the metal end of the garden hose in the other end of the noodle.

If you want to secure it, you can tape it or use a few more small bits of previous project noodle in with the hose to help hold it tight.

Add water.

Turn on the water!

You can also hang it overhead and use it for a shower. Get the sand off the kids before they come inside.

Or put it on the driveway or sidewalk to keep it cool when you’re out there barefooted!

It works great for that, too!
