Make Soft & Safe Lightsabers

My boys love battling with their lightsabers, but I've lost track of the number of times one of them ends up crying because he got clobbered with the hard plastic. So when I saw these DIY lightsabers from pool noodles, two things occurred to me: 1. DIY! 2. No kids will cry!

This craft is all over the web these days, especially on Pinterest. It's so easy to make you probably don't even need any instructions. Although if you are looking for the details, you can find good ones over at Cup of Daisies.

Have you made these? Would you consider them as an alternative to the store-bought plastic ones?
