Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    To make the pool noodle ring ~ Place four toothpicks into one end of a pool noodle.

  • Step 2

    Fold cardstock almost in half. Roll tight. Place inside the pool noodle.

  • Step 3

    Pool noodle ring ~ Fail! If you don’t fold the cardstock in half, then the ring won’t be a nice circle.

  • Step 4

    Place E-6000 glue liberally onto toothpicks and the pool noodle onto one side. My experience has been that without the glue, the duct tape can’t hold the pool noodle as a ring.

  • Step 5

    Hold the pool noodle for 2 minutes to give the glue a chance to dry.

  • Step 6

    Duct tape to secure the pool noodle into a ring.

  • Step 7

    To create the agility rings course ~ lay out six rings and two straight pool noodles in the pattern you want.

  • Step 8

    Duct tape the pool noodles together in the pattern. It’s easier if you lay the duct tape under the noodle first and then wrap around.
