I'm trying to keep my 5 year old's hands off it until Halloween because the tube is fragile and he wants to use it for his costume. We'll see how long that lasts. Devin doesn't like the look of the tissue paper so we're going to try something else with his. He's going to take some fine sandpaper to the tube to turn in cloudy and put some aluminum foil over the far end to reflect some of the light back. If that works, maybe I'll redo this lightsaber in the same way. I don't really like the wad of tissue I have glowing at the end.
Anyway, this project has been pretty fun and very simple. I'm really happy with out the handles turned out .
