Javelin Noodles

Pool noodles are inexpensive and fun to use in therapy. If you tape them together in circles they make targets for shooting your javelin noodles thru or to jump into.

In the clinic setting, clients can stand between parallel bars while throwing the javelins. This activity also helps to elevate mood especially when clients are doing it together and wrist weights can be added for additional strengthening. Another version of this is with balloons. You can have clients smiling that never smiled before when they get to peg the nurses with balloons as they go down the hall. Now that is meaningful therapy to them!
