Back in May, we held a May the 4th Be With You Craft Day to celebrate pop culture and Star Wars. We had a pretty good turn out. The above image shows the three crafts we prepared. Below, one of my favourite books this year, Rod Duncan's super cool The Bullet-Catcher's Daughter, is being bookmarked by a cute, felt Chewbacca bookmark.
Felt Chewbacca Bookmark
You can find the template for this in the Star Wars website.
-dark brown, black, red/coral, white, light brown felt
-a really good pair of scissors that can cut through felt
We were inspired to make the light sabers from this Disney craft page.
-pool noodles cut into shorter pieces; we used mini foam float-boards from the dollar store, cut into strips
-black electrical tape, or a black permanent marker
You can find the template for R2-D2 here.
-white card stock paper
-a sheet of blue stickers you can cut into different shapes
Wish I had taken some photos of the ones the kids made, but alas! I think I forgot my camera then...
