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 Hollywood Studios celebrating over at Star Wars Launch Bay, you can do this cool Star Wars craft instead! It is a Chewbacca Puppet Craft that your young Star Wars fan can create in your house with supplies you probably already have on hand!
What you need to make your Chewbacca Puppet Craft:
- 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 as I have done in the supplies photo above.
Color Chewbacca. He is brown and furry. 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 teeth. Be sure to have children glue the teeth in properly. They should attach on the underside of the mouth opening (on the flap). If they want to create a tongue inside the mouth, that is an option.
Add eyes, nose, and add whiskers with marker. Glue on bandolier (his utility belt). You may have to trim the belt since it is place on an angle.
Add the whites of the eyes and the rest of the bandolier. Draw a line through the bandolier to create a division. Add pupils to eyes with black marker as well.
And there you have it! An easy craft for you and your little Star Wars fan to create to celebrate May the 4th!
