These DIY Pool Noodle Swords are so easy to make and kids love to play with them. These are so much fun for summer or perfect for a DIY gift.
As a new mom, I always said I wasn’t going to buy toy swords for my kids. Three boys later and everything in my house turned into a sword. They may not have had “toy swords” but they had Lego bricks, sticks they found in the yard, and a million other things they found around the house.
I gave in after a few years and let them have a few toy swords. Since then they’ve spent a lot of time “fighting” with each other and having a blast.
These DIY pool noodle swords are cheap to make and are really fun for kids to play with. The padding of the pool noodle gives then a bit of cushioning so they won’t cause much damage (and they have a bit of bounce when they hit other swords).
My kids have had so much fun making and playing with these DIY pool noodle swords. Get creative and come up with your own versions. My older boys made a few short ones for their little sisters (which they loved) and a longer double sword that they have loved showing off to their friends.
