In honor of the new Star Wars movie coming out later this winter, here is a collection of our favorite Star Wars crafts and activities for kids!
Star Wars Writing Prompts – Print these 16 writing prompts for kids age 8-11. Several of them would work for younger kids as well! Story starters, persuasive writing, descriptive writing, and more.
Star Wars Nerf Games – Star Wars and Nerf, what a great combination!
Star Wars Play Dough – Awesome for imaginative play!
Star Wars Perler Bead Patterns. We love perler beads! Perfect fine motor practice for age 5+, and my kids love the finished product. They were kind of addicted over the summer.
Star Wars Tin Can Lanterns. So easy to make, and fun for any time of the year!
Star Wars Paper Crafts. Great projects for kids around age 8+.
For younger kids – make a Star Wars Planet Book. This has been one of our favorite projects ever! The process is so fun.
Make a Duct Tape Mandalorian Jetpack – For pretend play, but it would be great as part of a costume, too!
Make an X-Wing from Office Supplies. You probably already have the supplies you need for this project! Dad will want to get in on this one too.
LEGO Star Wars Planet Worlds. Perfect for imaginative play!
Make a Pool Noodle Light Saber. Kids of all ages will love these, and they can duel with little damage to the house, or each other!
