Here is a fun Star Wars craft for kids that you probably have all the materials for.  Make an X-Wing Starfighter out of office supplies!

How to Make a Star Wars X-Wing out of Office Supplies

Aidan and I saw this idea on Instructables and thought it was so fun!  We added duct tape to make ours look more like the real X-Wing.

How to Make a Star Wars X-Wing of of Office Supplies

To make one, you will need:

  • A wide Sharpie marker
  • Binder clips – large and small
  • Paper Fasteners – 1.5 inch
  • Pen caps (4)
  • Duct tape – white and red
  • Cardboard – just a small piece
  • Clear mailing tape
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun

Step 1:

Cover the Sharpie with white duct tape.  Leave the clip uncovered on the cap – this will be used to attach the wings.

Step 2:  Build the wings.  Take the clips off the binder clip bases.  Swap them out – put the large clips on the small bases (red, in our case).

Clip the binder clips onto a small piece of cardboard.  Slide the cardboard under the clip on the Sharpie marker.

Add a paper fastener to each wing.  Wrap a small piece of clear tape around each paper fastener to hold them on.

Glue on the pen caps.  We used hot glue for ours.

Step 3:  Add more duct tape details.  We wrapped a small piece of white duct tape around each wing and then added red stripes.

One of the large binder clip bases made the perfect stand.
