That lead me to my quest of the illusive red pool noodle. To make my noodle craft, I needed a red one to go with the blue one that I already had. I thought it would be easy to find a simple red pool noodle. But I was wrong. Not in this town. Not in the middle of June.
I was determined. So I did the unthinkable. I went to Wal-Mart...on a Saturday. On a Saturday, in the summer, when all the kids are out of school. I know you're probably thinking "Why is that so bad?" You'd have to know my town. Wal-Mart is a social meeting place, a playground for kids, a family reunion spot....especially on a Saturday.
I put on my best pair of slippers (that's a W-M joke, sorry) and drove to Wally World in search of a red noodle. I was lucky. They had one left. I grabbed it and ran to the speedy checkout line. I was almost run over by some little munchkins playing Marco Polo in the middle of the store. Their parents were part of the family reunion going on in aisle 5.
I made it home...alive and well. Want to see what I made? After that long, ridiculous story, you're probably expecting the pool noodle version of the Mona Lisa. Well, you're in luck...
I present to you what my husband calls the "kindergarten project". I think he's right (but don't tell him, k?) Here is my "pool noodle pennant banner" made by a 47 year old kindergartner.
You don't seriously need a "tutorial" for this do you?
Good, because I'm going to munch on the beef jerky and peanut M&M's that I swiped in the checkout line.
