Disney recently announced that the newest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker would be released on Disney+ early. Apprioately the film will be made available on May 4th. You don't have to be an avid Star Wars fan to understand the pun here. Much like April 30th is It's Gonna be May Day, the 4th of May has become Star Wars Day and the proper greeting or farewell is May the 4th Be with You. This day became so widespread that it was even referenced in an episode of The Big Bang Theory. To celebrate, here are all the Star Wars crafts, activities, games and treats you need to have an EPIC all-day Star Wars binge-party. The order in which you decide to watch the films is entirely up to you.
Star Wars Day Crafts, Activities and Treats; May the 4th Be With You
May the 4th Be With You: Star Wars Crafts
This craft is great for toddlers and preschoolers. All they'll need is a little help in the printing and cutting department but then I say let them assemble this Star Wars Inspired R2-D2 Craft from Mama Likes This, themselves! You can print the 7 page template on the color correct card stock or print it on white sheets and color/paint R2-D2 before assembling.
Is R2-D2 truly complete if C3po isn't right by his side? Check out this fun (and easy!) Star Wars C3po Paper Craft from Easy Crafts for Kids. Again if you have the proper colored card stock you can print the template out on the coordinating sheets OR for added fun print them on white paper and color the parts with crayon or paint them. The mess factor of this craft is all up to you!
If you have a paper plate, your kids can assemble this super cute DIY Star Wars Princess Leia Craft from Marcie and the Mouse! Just look at the hair buns! So fun!

Anyone in your house like to sew? Take a loot at the Cutest DIY Yoda Plushie from Unique Gifter! Some felt, a needle and thread and you are good to go. But remember, when sewing this Yoda, "do or do not, there is no try".
This DIY Star Wars Lightsaber is so simple and so genius I have to applaud Life Anchored here because we've all had lightsabers in our house and never knew it! A pool noddle and some duct tape and your Jedi is ready for action!
Listen, we can argue all day about the semantics behind me including Baby Yoda crafts in the Star Wars Day, May the 4th celebration but I cannot get enough of The Child and I know you love him too. Just look at this Toilet Paper Roll Baby Yoda Craft from Simple Everyday Mom and try to tell me that it isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen.
