This DIY Lightsaber Pool Noodle is Kid-Approved

Posted on a blog by the father of an enthusiastic Star Wars fan, this DIY lightsaber pool noodle is an awesome way to inject some galactic style into swim time.

Incredibly simple to achieve, this rendition of the classic pool accessory requires only a few materials. Created with just a little bit of cutting, taping and tweaking, any parent can create this thematic toy for their children. Though they don't actually light up, which might pose some safety issues in the water, pool noodles are often so colorfully designed with bright hues that this minor detail doesn't affect the overall impact of the toys.

Giving parents a project to complete with their children and offering some fairly impressive end results, the DIY lightsaber pool noodle is sure to please.
