Using a swimming pool foam noodle, PVC pipe and an end cap and an electrical tape, you too can make this crafty lightsaber for younglings to act out their favorite Jedi battles.
Do your kids (boys in particular) love swords and/or lightsabers? Mine do. In fact everything at our house can be turned into a sword with a little imagination. We saw some of these swords at a craft fair a few years ago and decided to make some on our own. They are super easy.
