Pool Noodle Lightsabers

image

This little gem of an idea came from http://joyfuljoyful.com/isaiah-samuels-star-wars-birthday-party/ and I loved it!
I started by buying six regular pool noodles, silver duct tape and electrical tape. As you’re going to cut them in half, you need to buy half as many noodles as you need lightsabers.

Once you have them cut in half, your creativeness moves to the forefront. You start by putting on your silver handle. Two strips of duct tape around the bottom is usually good. If they had had any red pool noodles, I probably would have done a handle in the middle to create Darth Maul’s super cool double – lightsaber, but I only had good guy colors.

My husband actually made these while I was working on other games. He took great pride in the fact that no two were alike. Once you have the basic duct tape handle on, just go crazy.

As you can see, there are a lot of ways to go with this. They can be as simple or as complex as you like.

The best part of pool noodle lightsabers is that kindergarteners can beat on each other with no ill effects.

Adults can even beat themselves on the head and it doesn’t hurt. These are definitely a great idea for a kid party!
Have fun, and may the force be with you!
