INSTRUCTIONS FOR DIY STAR WARS LIGHTSABER
Here is a step by step guide to make your own lightsaber using a straw and coin battery
STEP 1 : Measure and Cut the Straw
If there is a bendy portion in the straw then break it off.
STEP 2 : ATTACH THE LED LIGHT
Place the coin battery between LED wires, so that the positive side of the battery contacts the positive ( longer) LED wire. And the negative side of the battery contacts the negative (shorter) LED wire. The LED bulb should light up.
Secure a tape to the LED and the battery.
STEP 3 : Assemble and Turn On Your Lightsaber
Insert the LED into the straw.
Your Star Wars lightsaber are ready for action.
The kids had so much fun playing with them that we ended up making a few lightsabers with different colored straws.

HOW STAR WARS DAY STARTED
May the Fourth is a day to celebrate all things Star Wars. The expression “May the force be with you” is widely spoken and repeated by characters in the Star Wars series as a means of wishing the other person a safe mission and good fortune against the dark side. The force is strong and supports those characters who make good use of it.
So because of a pun, Star Wars Day was made, and that’s all there is to it. “May the force be with you.” May the Fourth (be with you).
So, hurry and grab the supplies to make your own mini version of lightsabers.
Not only is making a DIY lightsaber a fun and creative activity, it also teaches valuable skills such as measuring, cutting, and following instructions. Plus, it’s a unique addition to any Star Wars collection.
Finally, making your own Star Wars lightsaber is an easy and affordable project that anyone can do. Follow these simple steps and you’ll be ready to battle the dark side in no time! May the force be with you.
