My niece’s love for everything Star Wars, inspired me to create these Yoda SWAPS. With the use of glow-in-the-dark paint, these SWAPS were a big hit.

Supplies Needed:

  • This pdf file
  • Card stock
  • 1/8 inch dowel sticks
  • Sturdy scissors, or hedge pruners
  • Sandpaper
  • Neon green, glow in the dark paint
  • Silver paint
  • Paint brush
  • Wax paper
  • White school glue
  • Safety pins
  • Ink pen

Step 1: Print this pdf onto cardstock. Each page contains 4 of each of the 3 sayings shown in the picture above, for a total of 12 per page.  Cut along the dotted lines. Using a ink pen, write your name, troop # and event information of the back of each card.

Step 2:  Paint the dowel sticks with neon green glow in the dark paint.  (Yoda’s light saber should be green).  I left the dowel sticks whole at this point and placed them on wax paper to dry. It took several coats of paint to achieve the look I desired.

Step 3: Using a pair of heavy duty scissors, or garden pruners, cut the dowel rod into 2 inch pieces.   Lightly sand each end to remove any rough spots.

Step 4: Paint one tip of each piece with the silver paint. Allow to dry.

Step 5: Touch up the cut end with green paint.  Allow to dry

Step 6: Using white school glue, add on light saber to each card prepared in step one.  After the glue has dried add a safety pin.

Step 7: SWAP
