Pool Noodle Fishing

It is Water Fun Wednesday!

Mia loves fish and fishing for fishies. So I decided to make her kiddie pool a fishing spot for her.

In order to make the pool noodle fish you will need:

2 pool noodles (dollar tree) , Foam sheets, a sharpie marker, wiggly eyes, scissors and a hot glue gun.



First, glue wiggly eyes onto the noodle (shown below).


Then cut the foam sheets to make 2 fins. (shown below)


Cut a slit on the bottom.


 You will fold the bottom up to secure it with glue to the fish.  As you can see the two sides of the slit are in opposite directions.

Once glued then make lines on the fin with Sharpie marker.

Now, we need to make the tail using one foam sheet. First cut like you see below.


Then cut the big piece like seen below.


Glue the tail to the back of the fish. And make lines on the tail as well, using the sharpie marker.

Make at least six of these for a fun fishing game.

To play: you will need a kiddie pool filled with water, your pool noodle fish, and a butterfly net ( found mine at dollar tree).


Your child can catch the fish standing up walking around the pool.

Or sitting in a chair outside the pool.

Mia had such a great time telling me, “I got one!”

After catching all her fish she put them back in the pool and jumped in to cool off with them.

Enjoy cooling off this summer playing Pool Noodle Fishing. These pool noodle fish will last for a while. Using hot glue on the foam of a pool noodle withstands the roughness of being thrown around and being in the water.

We love POOL NOODLE FISHING , You will too.

From one Momee Friend to another have fun! : )
