Pool Noodle Monster Craft

These pool noodle monster crafts are perfect for the Summer, or even at the end of August whenever pool time is over!

Normally by the end of July we have gathered up stacks of pool noodles. These are perfect for stacks of different crafts! Today I am going to show you how to make some monsters with them!

You only need a small number of craft materials, which you probably have a supply of already. I am talking about pipe cleaners, pom poms and googly eyes!

I used some of these for my Fall leaf monsters, so if you want a monster theme week, you can make those as well. 

Whenever Summer ends you can turn your old pool noodles into some cheery monsters in time for Halloween! I hope my step by step craft procedure helps you make yours!

There is no set guidance though as you can do whatever you like with these!

PROCEDURE

Step 1 – Use a knife to cut some pool noodles into smaller pieces. The size is entirely up to you. Why not make different sized pieces to make your monsters all unique!

Step 2 – Use a glue gun to add some googly eyes onto your pool noodles. Here again the number and size of these depends on you. You can see from my picture below that I went for a range of sizes and added these in random positions. We are making monsters after all so anything goes.

Step 3 – Add some pipe cleaners to your monsters! Bend them, make them into shapes, cut them shorter or leave them long, you decide. See my completed craft. Older kids will have so much fun with this step! Stick them on the monster’s faces, turn them into feet and arms or hair. 

Step 4 – Finally add some pom poms using the glue gun. Put them anywhere you like. My 3 year old always like to use these for noses but you can make them as buttons for monster clothes.
