I was a little concerned that despite assurances from the author of the post that she's never seen anyone get hurt with one of these, we would manage it. It's been two days, and while the swords are rapidly disintegrating, the children are still intact. Score!

Yes, there was some smacking that probably stung a little, but overall they played nice. We had to laugh when someone ran to the bedroom and came out with a hanger so they could be Captain Hook.
The kids had so much fun that I'm sure I'll be making these swords again.
