September 08, 2021

Pool noodles are incredibly versatile and are often not only used as a floatation device for children learning to swim. You can use pool noodles in so many different ways for a variety of purposes.


In today’s blog, we take a dive into the versatile uses of pool noodles:

Swimming Pool Fun

Obviously, the primary purpose of pool noodles is as a swimming aid for children or individuals learning to swim for the first time. Adults can use pool noodles as well, both as a relaxation tool and a swimming aid. They are incredibly easy to use and come in a variety of sizes and colors.


Pool Noodle Chairs

Because of their simple construction, low cost, and flexibility, pool noodles are often made into other products. This can be a fun DIY project for the family. One of the things you can do is construct your own pool noodle chair. There are many different types of chairs, but the most popular type is the super simple single-seater version.


Table Edge Protectors

Pool noodles are a great and cheap way to protect your table edges and other furniture pieces with sharp or angled edges. Slice open the pool noodle and wrap it along the edge of your table. Use simple adhesives to keep the pool noodle in place that will not damage your furniture. A simple pair of scissors will be able to get the job done.



Pool noodles are often used as a foam insert for tent poles. Using a foam pool noodle as a tent pole insert is incredibly convenient as pool noodles can be cut to the desired length and then covered with duct tape or plastic wrap. This prevents your construction from unraveling. Many campers find tent pool noodle foam inserts helpful in preventing future damage and adding extra comfort for sleeping or sitting.
