Step 1: 

Use your box cutter to carefully cut your pool noodle to the length you desire.  If you prefer you can leave it whole.

Step 2: 

Use your popsicle stick or stir stick to make holes in one end of the noodle.  Push the stir stick all the way through on a north-south axis and then again on an east-west axis.  Remove the stir sticks and set them aside.

Step 3: 

Put your cork in the end of your pool noodle.  Push it in and up past the holes you just created.

Step 4: 

Put one stir stick back through the first set of holes you created.  

Step 5: 

Place a second stir stick through the other holes.  This locks the cork in place and also serves as a stand for the sprinkler.

Step 6: 

Use another stir stick or a toothpick or a skewer to put holes in the noodle.  You can make your holes in a straight line or in a random pattern.

Step 7: 

Attach your noodle to a water source and let the wet and cool fun begin.  Here I am attaching to a sink in my warehouse, but of course you would want to connect it to a hose in your backyard.
