Now.. I don’t know about you, but both The Englishman and my son are HUGE STAR WARS fans.. I guess it is a generational thing (mainly the Englishman’s childhood) and him passing on his childhood passion to his son. Personally, I enjoy the Star Wars films and the Star Wars characters, but I really don’t have to watch them all 10 times.. hahaha. Having said that, that doesn’t stop me on embarking on some Star Wars Crafts & Activities with the kids. I suspect that Red Ted will want a Star Wars party next year, so this “round up” is a great start for me to plan his “big day”. Also, did you know that there was actually a STAR WARS DAY?! Yep.. May the 4th be with you. Teehee. You gotta love a pun on words. So if you are looking for May the 4th Day activities, are planning a Star Wars party or simply love Star Wars and anything to do with it, these crafts are for you. Many you can do with the kids, some you can do FOR the kids. And a number of these Star Wars crafts also make great gifts for Star Wars fans (I particularly like the Star Wars Ornaments as gift ideas!).
