I am a huge Star Wars fan.  My kids are huge Star Wars fans.

So when we heard that there is going to be a new movie and series on Disney XD called Star Wars Rebels , we were very excited about it.  The movie came out on DVD this Friday and will be exclusively at Walmart until 10/13.  I got it there and planned a few activities for my kids do to get them excited about it (not that they needed to get excited, they already were).  So I picked up some toys and some things to make the awesome light sabers

I got the movie and this fun Hasbro toy to play with during and after the movie.  We made a fun evening out of it.  The evening was just filled with Star Wars!  The force was strong among us.

While we watched the movies, we made the light sabers.

This is how we made the light sabers.
I used a wrapping paper tube.  It's that time of year to get lots of wrapping paper, so you might as well save the tubes for this fun craft.

I painted the tubes with spray paint.  You could also use tape to color them if you didn't want to use paint.  I then cut out some silver vinyl in circles and strips so they could decorate them.

I let my kids just start wrapping the electrical tape around the tube.

Then they put the vinyl onto the tape on the tube.

And that's it.  Seriously so easy and so fun!  These would be perfect for a costume or for a birthday party!  The little one is made out of a paper towel tube.

After the movie, we enjoyed playing with them.  The kids had a blast and the tubes were soft enough that they could actually play fight.

My baby loved his too.

After we had our fun light saber fights, the kids created the #SparkRebellion with these little action figures.

You can't have a fun evening with a movie without a treat.  I found these awesome light saber suckers, they were perfect for our Star Wars evening!
