Sugar Aunts: Counting Blocks Star Wars Lightsaber

Counting Blocks Star Wars Lightsaber

If your sons (and daughters) are anything like mine they love to make lightsabers out of anything.  Ever since they were introduced to Star Wars, the lightsaber is definitely a favorite in our house.  We built these lightsabers with counting blocks and wanted to share.  Because it sure is fun!
Build a lightsaber using counting blocks or cubes to encourage math through play with your Star Wars fan!


Make Lightsabers with Counting Blocks


We are sharing affiliate links in this post.  To make build our lightsabers, we used one of our favorite toys; these snapping blocks are a toy that is used almost every day in our house.  From building robots to spaceships, and now lightsabers...we love these blocks.  They are great when used as a counting manipulative for preschoolers.  Other counting blocks could also be used. 

Make a lightsaber using counting cubes. This is perfect for a Star Wars fan!

Build the lightsabers using a row of counting blocks.  Encourage your child to count out the blocks and match up the numbers when making a double lightsaber.  This is a fun way to encourage math through play and interests in Star Wars.  Have fun with your counting block lightsabers!
