my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to ... defend yourself with a pool noodle
A couple of week ago, I bought one or two pool noodles.
We have been building with them, using them as incline planes for marbles, telescopes, armrests - but that's another post.
I also wanted to make some noodle swords for the kidlets to be able to play with outside.
Amy at muddy boots has a fabulous tutorial how to make very fancy lightsabers.
Here are my less-than-fancy but fully functional, noodle swords.
Noodle swording does have some fairly serious rules.
1. Swords are for playing not for hurting. Anyone is hitting for hurting is de-sworded.
2. You can only hit someone who also has a sword in their hand.
3. If you have a sword in your hand, please expect someone to hit you.
4. Hitting is only allowed between shoulders and toes. Anyone who forgets this rule will be de-sworded.
5. When you are finished with the sword, it needs to be returned to the sword bin.
Let the swording begin ....
on guard ...
battle on the foredeck
one for all and all for one ...
I think our fortress/ship/castle is well defended,
