Star Wars Arts and Crafts for Kids

Check out this collection of easy Star Wars crafts you could do with your little ones at home!

1. Watercolour Droid Craft

The craft uses a trend called the “black glue art”, which might sound a bit complicated but is very easy to do once you understand it. Children will surely love creating this wonderful watercolour droid!

What You Will Need:

  • Black acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Stir stick
  • Star Wars Droid Template
  • Watercolours
  • Watercolour paper

Procedure:

  • If you are going to use a new bottle of glue for the crafts, then pour out about 1/2″ of the glue from the bottle into another container.
  • Then replace the transferred glue with black acrylic paint. Pour a little of the black acrylic paint into the bottle to ensure you do not thin the glue too much, especially if the acrylic paint is runny and thin itself.
  • Place the lid back on and shake the bottle to mix the paint and the glue.
  • When the paint and the glue are somewhat mixed, remove the lid and stir the glue using a stick.
  • Then, either print out the droid templates on mixed media paper or watercolour paper or let your child draw them.
  • Trace the outline of the droids with the black glue and then let it dry.
  • Once the glue has dried, use the liquid watercolours to make your own colourful droids.

2. Star Wars StitchCraft

This is a great craft for hand-eye coordination, and it teaches children patience. Go for plastic canvas needles instead of real needles to avoid any accidents.

What You Will Need:

  • Red, white, and black foam sheets (5.5 X 8.5 Inch)
  • Plastic canvas needles
  • Yellow, black, and green embroidery floss
  • Scissors
  • Punch tool
  • Tape
  • An empty box or foam board
  • Template

Procedure: 

  • Place the foam sheet on top of the empty box or the foam board.
  • You could either print out the templates or draw the outline of the faces of the characters in Star Wars on a paper and place it on top of the foam sheet.
  • Using a wooden skewer or a bead reamer, punch many small holes along the outline of the template on the foam sheet. Make sure your child punches hard enough to make it all the way through the foam sheet.
  • Cut the embroidery floss to a length you think your little one can handle.
  • Secure one end of the floss on the foam sheet using tape. This will make it easy for your little one to thread through the needle.
  • To secure the needle to the floss, have your little one tie a knot at the other end.
  • Begin the activity by threading the needle from the back of the sheet. The tape will act as a stopper at the back.
  • In between, you could change the colour of the thread when required. Once the entire picture is done, you could tape it on a fridge or frame it!

3. Star Wars Yoda Shape Craft

The best part about this craft is that it can be easily prepared in just a few minutes using simple shapes and colours.

What You Will Need:

  • Scissors
  • Coloured cardstock (brown, green, black/dark brown, white, and red)
  • Pencil
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes

Procedure: 

  • For this craft, cut out a large black triangle for the body, two brown rectangles for the cape, a green circle for the head, one red square for the mouth, 2 green triangles for the ears, and two tiny black rectangles for the ears.
  • Once the pictures are cut out, your child could start creating!
  • On a white sheet, place the green circle above the brown triangle body and paste the rectangles at the side.
  • On either side of the circle, paste the two triangles for the ears. On the circle, paste the mouth, nose (a little black rectangle), and two googly eyes.
  • If you do not have any googly eyes, you could cut two circles from white cardstock and two smaller circles from black cardstock, and paste the smaller circles inside the larger circles to make the eyes.
  • You could even do this with other easy Star Wars characters like R2-D2.

4. R2-D2 Pencil Holder

Whether it is for your children’s homework area or for your desk at work, the R2-D2 pencil holder is fun and easy!

What You Will Need:

  • Tin can
  • Felt glue
  • Felt (blue, white, grey, black, and red)
  • Scissors

Procedure:

  • Take the tin can and cover it with a layer of white felt. You can tuck the excess felt inside the tin can.
  • Take more white felt and cover two-thirds of the can from the bottom. Glue the felt as your cover.
  • The remaining top third, containing only one layer of felt, can be covered with grey felt. Tuck the excess felt inside the can and glue it properly.
  • Take a thin strip of blue felt and stick it all across the place where the white and the grey felt meet.
  • Take the blue felt and cut small rectangles to create the blue section of the droid. Glue these blue rectangles around the grey area of the can.
  • At the centre, glue one large horizontal rectangle on the grey section and a black circle on the rectangle as the camera lens. Below this camera lens, glue a smaller circle from the red felt.
  • Cut out three blue felt strips and stick them on the white area below the camera lens. Below these three strips, paste three grey vertical rectangles.
  • To secure the felt in place, attach a clothespin around the rim of the tin can and allow the glue to dry completely. This would take over an hour.
  • Once it is dry, remove the clothespin and fill the tin can with pencils!

5. Star Wars Yoda Card Craft

These make great handmade cards children can give their friends, teachers, and relatives!

What You Will Need:

  • White cardstock
  • Coloured card stock (black, pink, and green)
  • Standard hole punch
  • 0.5” circle
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Green and black marker

Procedure:

  • Begin by downloading the template of a Yoda, printing it out, and cutting out the pieces.
  • Take the green cardstock and fold it in half. Place the template on the cardstock, with the head on the fold line. Therefore, when you cut the head area, do not separate or cut the fold line to keep the card intact.
  • Place the ears template on the green cardstock and cut two identical ears. For the inner ear, place the smaller ear template on pink card stock and cut it out. Finally, create the ears by pasting the pink inner ears to the bottom of the green outer ear.
  • Paste the finished ears to the backside of the card, with the fold line as the top of the head.
  • Cut out black circles for eyes using the template. Glue a 0.5” circle and a standard hole punch circle on top of a black circle. Make another eye this way and paste them on the card, i.e. the head.
  • Draw a small oval nose under the eyes using a dark green marker and a small smile under the nose, along with some wrinkles on the forehead using a black marker.
  • Finally, write a sweet message inside the card, and it is good to go!

6. Star Wars Death Star Piñata

Making a piñata can be time-consuming, but it can be a great addition to your child’s Star Wars themed birthday party! When doing the Star Wars Death Star Piñata craft, it is best to do it outside to avoid any mess inside the house. Don’t forget to keep a waste cloth or paper towels near.

What You Will Need:

  • A large balloon
  • Water
  • White glue
  • Newspaper
  • Scissors
  • Wire
  • White paper
  • Paint
  • Duct tape

Procedure:

  • Begin by blowing a large balloon.
  • Then, take a container and create a mixture with equal amounts of white glue and water.
  • Cut a few square strips of the newspaper and apply the mixture on the strips. Place each strip on the balloon until you cover it entirely. Glue 3 or 4 layers of newspaper strips and let them dry.
  • After the piñata has dried completely, carefully pop the balloon and take it out. Cut a round hole and fill the piñata with candy. Cover this hole using tape and the glue-water mixture, apply a layer of white paper above the tape.
  • Make another small hole to insert a wire hanger, which you could reinforce with some duct tape.
  • Paint the piñata with grey acrylic paint and let it dry. Then, paint a black circle just like a death star. Around the middle, glue a strip of black paper or black-coloured tape to complete the death star piñata.

7. Sponge Printed Death Star Craft

What You Will Need: 

  • Scissors
  • Cardboard
  • Paint (black, grey/silver)
  • Black card
  • Sponge

Procedure: 

  • Take the large cardboard and draw a large circle on top using a plate to get a perfect outline.
  • Cut the circle out from the cardboard and then paint it grey or silver. Let the paint dry.

  • Take the sponge and cut it into different-sized rectangles using scissors. Use these different-sized rectangles to stamp black paint on the Death Star.
  • Finally, cut out a circle from the black card and paste it onto the Death Star using some glue. Your Death Star is ready!

8. BB-8 Droid Paper Plate Craft

  • Cut out orange circles and silver designs that resemble the downloaded image and stick them on the back of the second paper plate.
  • Next, glue the head on the body.
