For my son's Star Wars-themed birthday, we set up several different types of games, all with Star Wars flavour! One of the games was a light saber duel, and we needed something that could be used without harming any of the kids. We also still needed some kind of party favour. Enter the soft light saber, a toy that is still getting lots of use in our house a year and half later!
foam pool noodle
electrical tape in 1-2 colours
duct tape in black
1. Cut the pool noodle in half.
2. Wrap one end of the pool noodle with three strips of duct tape, creating the light saber handle. Wrap each end of the duct tape in coloured electrical tape.
3. Use the magic marker (we used fat Sharpies) to darken the cut end.
4. Have fun!
Linking up with some great parties!
