Pool noodles are awesome! There’s so much you can do with them and they provide hours of fun. My son thought up these cheap, easy and entertaining pool noodle ninja swords from his own noggin. Take a look!
I don’t know what it is with boys but they can always seem to create a weapon with most any random object. I just happened to have some extra pool noodles and PVC pipe laying around so before I knew it, all four of my boys had their own pool noodle ninja swords.
These pool noodles don’t take much to be super awesome. You just need the following supplies:
- One standard pool noodle (cut into two 12″ pieces)
- Duct tape
- 3/4″ PVC pipe cut to 26″ long
- Measuring tape (optional)
Assemble ninja swords
Take the two 12″ pool noodles and slide them over the PVC pipe on both ends. You should have about 2 inches of exposed PVC pipe in the middle. This will be your handle. Place as little or as much duct tape that you want all over the pool noodle. You can make cool designs and use all different colors to create the effect you’re looking for.
The best part about these swords is that they are easy enough for a kid to make. Plus, they aren’t very hard in case someone gets hit in the head or something. My boys played with these for hours. It was sweet.
I wouldn’t want to run into these crazy ninjas on dark alley in the middle of the night.
