DIY Glow in the Dark Star Wars Light Sabers

DIY-Glow-in-the-dark-light-saber-8

The fabulous Southern California weather is upon us, my family tends to spend many hours outdoors swimming and playing ball, but what gets all 3 of my kids excited and together is blowing bubbles. They can play with bubbles for hours. These shimmering orbs are timeless. I still love blowing bubbles with my kids now, just as much as I did as a child blowing them for myself.

With the cast of Star Wars Episode VII just announced, what better time to make a Star Wars themed craft with bubble wands for outdoor imaginative play. They resemble Lightsabers and if you add a glow stick they light up! Your children can blow bubbles during the day and have a glowing lightsaber at night, long after the bubbles have been used up.

Directions:

1. Open the bubble wand package and pull off any stickers
2. With your sharpie marker color the handle in a design of your choice (I just colored in the pattern already on the handle)
3. Add a red dot as an on switch (if you want, it add some fun detail)
4. Open the package of glow sticks, choose a color and activate it (by snapping it and shaking)
5. Unscrew the cap/handle of the bubbles and drop the glow stick inside the bubble solution
6. Put the cap/handle back on
