How To Make A Glowing Lightsaber

Guest post by my son below. Please note that this how-to involves putting lights inside of foam, which is likely to be a fire hazard if left on. 

DO NOT LEAVE ONE OF THESE ON UNATTENDED!

Here is all the stuff you’ll need:
  1. a string of LED lights
  2. duct tape
  3. black electrical tape
  4. scissors
  5. a knife

First, I cut the noodle in half.

I did three layers of duct tape.

Then I put on 6 strips of black tape.

Then I cut the inside of the pool noodle.

Then I folded the lights 3 times.

Then I put the lights in with the switch on the bottom.

This is what it looks like in action.

If you have a small cell phone, you can put it in too to make lightsaber sounds.

AGAIN: DO NOT LEAVE ONE OF THESE ON UNATTENDED!
