Pool Noodle Horses

I usually rotate between a Star Wars and Kentucky Derby event for the first week in May, and this year is a Derby year.

We made pool noodle horses.

I got the instructions (and pics) from Mrs. King's Music Class. There are lots of tutorials and variations online, but I found this simplest and best for a patron DIY. Plus, with the exception of the pool noodles, I already had every thing else I needed.

Patrons could choose whatever pool noodle color they wanted when they came in, and I cut them a piece of twine. Additional available embellishments were foam stickers, pompoms, construction paper, sequins, and prima flowers.

The tables were set with googly eyes, felt, scissors, and low temp hot glue guns. Patrons could assemble the pool noodle horses, then decorate them however they liked.
