DIY Glow In The Dark Lightsaber Craft For Kids

This is the cutest DIY Glow in the Dark Lightsaber Craft for Kids. If you have a Star Wars fan in your house, this would be the perfect craft to make with them!

Do you have a Star Wars fan in your house? I absolutely love Star Wars and hope I can convince my daughter to love it too! One of the most iconic things about Star Wars is, of course, all the lightsaber fight scenes! From the first time Luke Skywalker turned on his lightsaber and Obi Wan Kenobi explained how it was more elegant than a blaster… I was hooked. 

Forget sword fights… as a kid I wanted to fight with a lightsaber. 

This super fun craft is incredibly easy to make and your kids will love that the lightsabers will actually glow in the dark! How fun is that? This would be an excellent idea for a Star Wars-themed birthday party, May the 4th celebrations, or just because your kids love Star Wars!

How to make glow in the dark lightsabers

  1. Open the bubble wands and pour bubble solution into the empty container for later use OR have some fun blowing bubbles while you wait for the sun to set!

2. Rinse out the empty container and make sure the bubble wand handle is clean and dry.

Pro-tip #1: Make sure the handle is clean and dry before you apply your tape! If it has any residual bubble solution on it, it won’t stick as well.

3. Using silver or grey duct tape, wrap the handle of the bubble wand.

Pro-tip #2: Have some fun with the texture of the handle! You can roll up some tape in strips, and place it in layers to add dimension and unique character!
