So after starting to introduce my 2 year old nephew to the wonder of Star Wars and the Jedi ways at Madam Tussauds in London and that evening this films he has been picking everything up shouting "saber, light light" and bashing everything in sight.
This got me thinking of making a quick and simple lightsaber for him that would not hurt anyone, anything or more importantly himself
And here is what I came up with.....
Step 1: You Will Need.....
A foam Matt or some foam for the handle - again I used a gray yoga mat from other projects
So good new all really cheap and easy to get hold of and if you get more than one tube you can craft you weapons together
Step 2: "crafting You Jedi or With Weapon"
Once you have decided simply measure a few inches from the bottom of the foam tube and cut a piece that will fit around to make the base of you handle *see pics*
Next cut another piece of foam the same size and this will be the part you use to make the details, you can make what ever shapes you want out of this, I cut to strips to go along the top and bottom of the handle and various other rectangles and circles
Step 3: Glue Glue and Glue Again
Once stick firmly in place stick the details
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Step 5: Duel..........
Obviously I let him win in this pic hhhahah
Enjoy and thanks for viewing
