3 DIY Water Toys That Are More Fun Than The Ones You Buy

Just when you thought you seen every ridiculous way to hack a pool noodle… introducing some awesome lightsabors plus two other ways to easily create some fun in the water.

1.  Water Bombs

Start by cutting the sponges into strips length-wise. You should be able to cut 4-5 strips from each sponge. Then, gather up 8 strips in whatever colors you like and wrap a rubber band around the middle and fluff out the sides. Ta-da!

2.  Fish Diving Toys

Start by painting your shells with bright acrylic paint. The larger shells are for the body and the smaller ones are perfect for the fins and tails. Draw eyes and lips onto the fish then attach the fins and tails onto the body with the hot glue gun. So quick and adorable, though they do fall apart after lots of us.  

3.  Pool Noodle Lightsabers

Cut the pool noodle in half, then cut two pieces of duct tape to approximately 19”. Place the first piece 8½” from the end of your noodle, wrap it around the bottom, and up the other side. Turn the noodle over, and repeat the same thing with the second piece of tape. Fold the corners of the tape up and over like you’re wrapping a present. Take the black electrical tape and wrap it around the top and bottom edge of your handle to hide the seams. Finally, we used colored tape to create buttons and designs to customize your lightsaber. Such a fun activity for when friends come to swim, may the force be with you!
