Summer Fun

We've been spending a lot of time outside because the weather is absolutely beautiful right now. I've been trying to come up with fun things to do for the kids. And a lot of things because their attention span is about 5 seconds long. And therefore cheap things, because I can't afford a ton of expensive things throughout the day to keep them occupied. 

One of my favorites we've done recently is to play with pool noodles and sponge balls I made. The noodles are $1 each from the Dollar Tree and the sponges are 10 for $1 at the Dollar Tree. 

I taped noodles into circles and then taped tree circles together. I got two packages of sponges and made 6 sponge balls. Grand total: $5. These make for great fun on a hot day when we have the water table and pool out and sprinklers going. Or on a cooler day, like today, and we just don't play in the water. 
I taped the noodle rings to our trampoline and the kids have fun tossing the sponge balls through the hoops.
