Making Medieval Swords

While getting together for our "The Door in the Wall" book group this week, we made the easiest, cheapest toy. Foam swords!
We took pool noodles and cut them using a large kitchen knife into quarters (first lengthwise and again widthwise). Then each long piece was cut into a point at one end. Another pool noodle was cut into 2 inch circles. We pushed the blunt end of the first piece through the circle piece. That's it. Two pool noodles easily made 6 swords.

We have been playing with these things for days now, and not one has broken, poked an eye out, or cut off an offender's head.

Such fun. Once again it proves that kids don't need the most expensive toys. Creativity is a plus.
