Pool Noodle Hopscotch

You can use pool noodles to create a hopscotch board, then rearrange them to create a different pattern. This is great to help kids increase their coordination!


  • 8-10 pool noodles
  • 10 large or 20 medium plastic ties


Step 1: Wrap the pool noodle into a circle so the edges overlap. Secure the edges together using the plastic tie. If the ties are smaller, you may need to combine two ties to wrap around both of the noodles. Pull the tie tight to hold the noodle ends in place.

Step 3: Place the noodles in a hopscotch pattern, with 1 or 2 noodle circles in each row for the kids to hop through.
