Lightsabers for kids! I had a ton of fun making with this with kids ages 7 to 10. We used wooden sticks that we found at the raft store and covered the handle in silver duct tape. Then I had the kids decorate the handle with a sharpie pen. Then they painted it the color of their choice. We used acrylic paint and found that the metallic colors gave the best "glow". They were quick, easy, and fun to make and led to hours of entertaining duels!
