Pool Noodle Visual Motor Ring

Print Friendly

I had a lot of pool noodles lying around, so I made a visual tracking ring to use with a marble.

To make the ring, I bent a regular pool noodle into a circle and duct taped the ends together. Then I took scissors (but an x-acto knife would work better) and I sliced out a strip of the noodle so I could see inside of the noodle. I left the duct tape area intact so the circle kept its integrity.

Have the kids move the ring around in a circle fluidly to make the marble go around the circle. You have to visually watch the marble as it goes around.
