A cheap pool noodle and some duct tape make an excellent stand-in for toy-store sprinklers. Poke holes in a row down one side of a pool noodle. Cover one end with a plastic bag and tape it shut to contain the water, and set a garden hose into the other end. (If necessary, use duct tape to secure it in place and minimize leaking.) Turn on the water and watch it spray.

Make this super easy Water Sprinkler for the kids using a foam pool noodle . plus lots of other fun pool noodle crafts. Have kids help you poke holes in the noodle and set it up! They will have more fun knowing that they helped to set it up!
