Hi friends! I know May fourth isn't an official holiday or anything, but my family absolutely loves the Star Wars saga, so we couldn't let the day go by without a little fun. We're just slightly nerdy like that. Since school is almost over, I'm already planning summer activities for the kiddos, so I bought some pool noodles from the Dollar Store, and we made these easy pool noodle lightsabers. My younglings had a blast!
I know this idea has been around for a little while, but as usual, we finally got around to trying it out. Not only are these lightsabers easy to make, but they're also super cheap. And best of all, they keep the kids active and away from electronics -- temporarily, at least.
My kids loved working on these, so if you have a Star Wars party planned, these pool noodle lightsabers would make a fun activity that the guests could also take home.
Supplies Needed for the Lightsabers
- Pool noodles
- Duck tape
- Sharpie markers or permanent markers
- Knife or scissors for cutting
Making the lightsabers was easy, and the longest part was getting the details correct on the handles. First, bend the pool noodle in the middle, and cut through the crease.
