Step 1: 

Cut the tube of pipe insulation so you have two pieces about 8 inches long.

Step 2: 

Next, cut the pipe cleaner in half. Each piece should be roughly 6 inches.

Step 3: 

Using your pen or pencil, poke a hole through the foam core on one end of each foam core piece. The hole should be about an inch from the end of the tube.

Step 4: 

Stick each pipe cleaner through each hole. Now join the pipe cleaner ends together by twisting them. This is sort of like twisting a candy wrapper! You will have a ring shape on one end of each nunchuck.

Step 5: 

Cut a piece of yarn about a foot long.

Step 6: 

Tie each end of yarn to one of the pipe cleaner loops. In essence you have bound the two foam core pieces together creating your homemade, injury-avoiding NUNCHUCKS!

Step 7: 

Now you and your child can have a blast battling bad guys!
