If you are like me, even with the best of Summer intentions, you are running out of ideas to keep the kids busy by August. Crafts are hit or miss around here with my boys so I have to seize any interest I can find. Right now, we are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Angry Birds Star Wars II (out September 19th) so I thought it would be fun to make some light sabers!
This was one of those late afternoon (please let us make it til dinner without a meltdown) crafts so I just used whatever I could find in the house. Thankfully, I didn’t need more than some paper, a couple of toilet paper tubes and some pipe cleaners! I drew a light saber for myself, Calvin, and Oscar. We colored them, cut them out, and put them together! The boys had a blast playing with them and they actually made it to day two (and counting)!
Make your own light saber!
