Pool Noodle Hockey

This is a fun, hyper game played in a gym. You get about 12-16 pool noodles in two different colors. Like orange for one team and purple for the other. Put two cones on each end of the gym to serve as goals. Use a soft plastic ball, the kind you get each spring at WalMart for about .88. You play the game just like hockey using the pool noodles as hockey sticks. The older teens like to fold the noodle into a U shape and beat at the ball. I don’t allow them to carry it in the U shape, only hit it. It’s fun and if you get hit with the “hockey stick” it doesn’t hurt. Sometimes we just whack at each other with the noodles, but limit this to a short explosion of fun because someone might get hurt.
