    We use pool noodles when we are camping. When we put the awning out on our camper, it is hard to see all the posts and supports. Hard on the head and also a tripping hazard. We slice pool noodles and cover all of them. They are definitely a source of conversation in our campgrounds we visit. Works great!

    When we had our child’s car seat checked to make sure it was in right the EMS guy used a noodle to help level it out.

    We use pool noodles to make soft swords. We put PVC pipe in the middle and wrap it with Duct Tape.

    I have seen several cars in my area use them for wipers. We don’t get a lot of rain usually. When it catches you off guard the noodles cut and fit over the old wipers will protect your windshield from being scratched and help you see if you need to drive.
