Turn A Pool Noodle Into A Marble Race Track

HomeSpun Threads

Summer has come to a close and for many that means you've packed up the pool and swim gear, not to be seen for another 7 months. Forget storing awkward things like pool noodles. Check out this simple idea that puts them to use as marble race tracks instead.

We checked in with Aimee over at HomeSpun Threads and found this great pool noodle project. It only takes a few seconds to create and can store easily under your children's bed or upright in a closet.

We love marbles and so do kids, but not many actually grasp the real game play involved with the shiny little spheres. So instead, they usually just get taken around the house and deposited into random places. Forget playing hide and go find your marbles, and make this simple race track instead. It even has a box at the end to catch them all so there's no retrieving them out from under your entertainment center. Aimee shares her tips for creating one at home over at HomeSpun Threads.
