Let's Make a Pool Noodle Abacus


  • Different colours of pool noodles
  • Rope

How to

  1. Cut the pool noodles in to different lengths. Then cut the pieces length ways to create a slit through to the central hole.
  2. Tie the rope to two safe and sturdy objects (such as a tree) and slide the noodle pieces on to the rope.

Let’s Play

Move the noodle pieces along the rope to develop coordination skills. If the rope is tied at an angle you can develop throwing skills by launching one noodle piece up to the top of the rope.
