DIY Soft Light Sabers

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

magic marker


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!

These are a great idea! We've had our share of light saber injuries at this house!

Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a little
homework on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast simply
because I discovered it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.

... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this subject here on your site.

am reading now.
