my friend melissa made more than TWO DOZEN of these foam light sabres for her son's star wars party. needless to say, they were a hit! my boys loved them so much i had to make two more for when friends were over. they're simple and hold hours of FUN!
just cut a pool noodle in half, get some duct tape, and black electrical tape.
find a light sabre design you want to recreate and start taping.
i made some as a birthday gift for my nephew and he was thrilled. they are used with great force (no pun intended:) and for the most part do not inflict injury. get some pool noodles on clearance and fight for the light side!
