With bright foam water noodles, we're doing that!
Cherylynn Desjardins
OK, by now you get a good sense of the tone of the whole thing: fun, funny, creative, inventive.

Our children at our child care center loved the activities in this book.

I am now known as the noodle lady which pretty sums me up in two words. As Training Manager for a busy inbound call center with lots of client training programs, I am forever trying to make work fun.
With bright foam water noodles, we're doing that! Creating zoodles of fun at work, we're smiling, we're happy, we're laughing and learning to work together and that of course will translate well to our callers when our customer service agents are back on the phones fresh from training. Yeah!
Of course this is now keeping me on my toes so hopefully there's a Noodles2 in the works.
Thanks and toodles!

Although this book has a lot of good ideas, I would caution people that it's difficult to get the noodle toys in bulk. This initially seems easy, but buying them at a regular toy store is expensive and you'll need a lot for the book's activities. Also, don't expect to find any in the winter time.
I suggest checking you get a "noodle-source" before getting this book.

There's something inherently funny about saying the words "Pool Noodle." Go ahead. Give it a try. Say: pool noodle, pool noodle, pool noodle. See what I mean? Even thinking about a pool noodle, a noodle in a pool, a pool full of pool noodles is kind of fun. And playing with a pool noodle, in a pool, of course, sitting on one, lying on one, lying on several...fun, all fun.

Well, what Chris Cavert and Sam Sikes tell you what you can do with pool noodles, on the land, even, is every bit as fun, and even more inventive than that. They've written two noodle books, as a matter of fact: 50 Ways to Use Your Noodle and 50 More Ways to Use Your Noodle.

Now, before I go any further, I want to warn you. Page through these books, and you're going to want to invest heavily in pool noodles. At about $3/noodle, we're not talking junk. Though you could purchase Tubular Polyethylene Foam Pipe Insulation, Pre-Slit, 3/8" Wall Thickness, For Use On 1/2" Copper Pipe Or 1/4" Iron Pipe, for maybe $3 for 4 3-foot sections. Which is more junk-like, but not much cheaper. Not only are you going to want to buy many, many pool noodles (at least one for each player), but you're going to want to (dare I mention this? yes, yes, I must) cut some of your noodles into 3-foot "Midaronis," 3-inch "Minironis," and 1-1/4-inch "Meatballs."

OK, by now you get a good sense of the tone of the whole thing: fun, funny, creative, inventive. So you're ready for at least one game. Like, for example, Balloon Volleyball, played with Midaronis. Do I need to explain this any more? Everyone with their own Midaroni. Trying to hit a large balloon over a volleyball net. Do you need me to tell you what fun this can be?

50 Ways to Use Your Noodle offers fun activities to use with groups of people, build teams, and have a great time. I've used the activities with various age groups from junior high through adults and all enjoyed the activities. The follow-up discussions really helped open participants' eyes to new situations or ways of approaching challenges. Easy to follow instructions and fun reading. The biggest challenges faced with using these materials are deciding which of the fun activities to use and finding space to keep all of the noodle supplies between trainings! :-)

I highly recommend this book! It includes a vast amount of inexpensive useful water and non-water activities for all ages to enjoy! Of all the workshops I have attended, I enjoyed the workshop that included the NOODLES!
