Pool Noodle Horses

My oldest loves horses. Horses make her beyond happy and she talks about them, draws them, watches shows about them, plays with toy horses, wants to learn all about horses, pretends to be a horse, looks at pictures of them, and says she wants to work with horses when she grows up. This has gone on for about two years now (of her five years of life that’s a lot). So any craft momma comes up with involving horses is a winner for my daughter 🙂


Pool noodle horses are easy, cheap and lots of fun!


Pool noodles (I got mine at the dollar tree)
Duct tape (I already had some fun colors the kids liked)
Googly eyes (self adhesive worked great for us)
Fabric scraps cut into strips
Felt for ears
Glue gun for the adult to use


First use the duct tape to make the bridle and reigns. Add googly eyes. Let the kids pick out scrap fabric strips for the adult to hot glue on for mane. Hot glue on some felt ears.




The kids have been playing with these for a few days and haven’t tired of them yet!


Katie has carried hers everywhere, I think it was the best three dollar craft I’ve ever done with her. We had everything but the pool noodles so the three dollars for the pool noodles is all I spent. It doesn’t cost a lot to have fun with your kids 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
