When we found a couple of long tubes recently my 9 year old decided they would be perfect for making lightsabers. I was a bit sceptical in the beginning especially as they used up a LOT of tape, but they worked out much better than I expected and lasted ages!
The small one was for the littlest member of the family, who was thrilled to be able to join in!
What you’ll need:
Long cardboard tubes
Cut the cardboard tube down to the size you want the lightsaber to be.
Wrap the handle with silver gaffer tape.
Wrap the rest of the lightsaber in coloured masking tape.
Couldn’t be easier!
