Noodles, Noodles, Everywhere!

If you were driving around the Cleveland Museum of Art during the Summer Solstice of 2009 you might have seen this....

So what happens to 18,720 pool noodles when they are no longer gracing the Cleveland Museum of Art's East Wing?

Well Nicole McGee of Plenty Underfoot has been storing quite a few of them for the past few years.  They popped up at Collective Upcycle this season:

So when Collective Upcycle was over for the summer, Nicole, gratiously offered to let us take home a noodle or two. My daughter jumped at the chance to bring some noodles home, and set up several different configurations at the store before we got even took them home. 

Audra from Little Tiger and the Milk Bellied Princess was their with the milk bellied princess and miss milk bellied princess and Phoebe used the noodles as a table and chairs, a boardwalk surrounded by hot lava, and an island of some sorts. Audra shared her daughters adventures on her blog here.

I have to admit I kind of hid the noodles in my car until my husband left, then brought them out for a play date with a few of the kids friends. The noodles transformed into:


Robot Arms

And the whole reason we brought them home, a table and chairs....
What else do you think they could be?
