May the 4th be with you! Yes, it is that time of year when we celebrate all things Star Wars. If you can’t be at Galaxy’s Edge, you can do this cool Star Wars craft instead!
Those looking for something special to do for Star Wars day should consider having their kids put together a Chewbacca puppet.
This Star Wars craft is easy enough for small children to complete with a little supervision, and best part is that you probably already have many of the supplies in your house!
Chewbacca Puppet Supplies:
- 1 brown paper bag
- 1 sheet of black cardstock/construction paper
- 1 sheet of white cardstock/construction paper
- pair of scissors (if you have a circle punch great, if not, that’s okay)
- Few markers (black & brown, and maybe red)
If you are working with little ones who have a hard time manipulating scissors or larger groups of children, you may want to go ahead and pre-cut the paper for them.
Cut out all the pieces for your Chewbacca.
You will need circles for the eyes & nose, a jagged strip for the teeth and one black strip and four white rectangles for his utility belt.
Set the pieces aside and complete step 2.
He is brown and furry. Children can use markers (or crayons if you prefer).
Encourage children to color in an up & down motion instead of in circles.
If you have variations of brown markers, this would be a great time to use them!
Add them to the underside of the mouth with glue.
If they want to create a tongue inside the mouth, that is another option.
Add eyes & nose and draw in whiskers with marker. If you have googly eyes, you can use them!
Glue on Chewbacca’s utility belt.
You may have to trim the belt since it is place on an angle.
Draw a line through the belt to create a division.
And there you have it! An easy craft for you and your little Star Wars fan to create to celebrate Star Wars Day!
