Pool Noodle Stack – Alphabet or Books of the Bible

Here is a fun activity to help kids learn the Books of the Bile or the alphabet.

Pool Noodle Kids Activities

This simple pool noodle activity is perfect for learning the Books of the Bible or your alphabet letters. Either way, here is how to make it:

Hint: If using to make the Books of the Bible I would make the Old Testament in one color and the New Testament slices in another so the pieces are easily separated.

Here is what you need:
  • 3/4” PVC pipe (to make the stand & tower – ours was 48” tall)
  • Joists (depending on the size you want
  • Pool Noodles (1 if doing ABC, 2 if doing Old & New Testament Books)
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie
cut a slit up the back of the pool noodle so kids can sneak in any they miss

After you've made your stand you are going to need to cut your pool noodle – first all the way up the back, then into 1-2” slices.

Note: The reason we cut it all the way up the back is so that if kids miss a letter or book of the Bible you can easily stick it in there.

pool noodles are great for learning the alphabet or the books of the bible

On each pool noodle wedge write a letter or book of the Bible. 

Pool Noodles make great learning fun for Preschool - 3rd grade

If using for alphabet letters this activity is best suited for Preschool & Kindergarten age kids. In that case you may want to make it shorter as they won’t be tall enough to put the pieces over the top. Of for a no-prep activity print on of our free Alphabet Printables.

If using to learn the Books of the Bible, the activity is best suited for 1st-3rd Grade students. In that case making it 48” tall is perfect for the height of the kids and the number of books you need to fit in.
