Party Ideas: Make Your Own Lightsabers

Having a Star Wars themed party, but don't want to break the bank (or anything else) with plastic lightsabers? 

Why not make each of your young Padawans their very own Pool Noodle Lightsaber? Or better yet, help them make their own! These are inexpensive and super fun and easy to make, with very little setup or cleanup (bonus!). 

Even the littlest Jedi-In-Training will be able to make his very own lightsaber, and unlike the balloon version that can pop or deflate after too many battles, these will be something they'll be able to take home with them, and enjoy for a good long time. Our Jedi entertainers can even use them to teach your guests all kinds of fancy lightsaber moves and become Jedi themselves!

What you'll need: 

  • Pool Noodles (each will make two standard light sabers, or one Doublesaber, for any Sith Lords in attendance)
  • Duct tape 
  • Black electrical tape
  • Red tape (optional)
  • Scissors

Make them as detailed or as simple as you like! 

Here's a great step-by-step tutorial from Kids Activities Blog to get you going. 

Have fun, and may the Force be with you!
