Easy arts and crafts at home – May the force be with you!
Stuck at home with the kids and wondering how to keep them busy without splashing out on indoor play centres? We’ve already given you some inspiration in our guide to what to do at home when the weather’s bad. But here’s something fun for any Star Wars fans out there. Try our special Star Wars themed arts and crafts activity, and your little Darth Vaders and Princess Leias will thank you (or at least not poke you with a lightsabre).
- Paper Plate (roughly 18cm in diameter)
- Paint (black for Darth Vader and Brown and beige Paint for Princess Leia)
- Crayons, Pen or Pencil
- Pen Knife
- Popsicle Stick
- Scotch Tape or Double-Sided Tape
- Glue Stick
- Sassy Mama Darth Vader/Princess Leia printables (download here!)
Darth Vader Mask
Step 1: Measure and cut out 2 triangles for eye holes with your penknife.
Step 2: Paint the entire plate black, once done, place it aside to allow it to dry.
Step 3: Once the paint is completely dry, use a white or light grey crayon to add in the details.
Step 4: Cut out the shapes provided in the printable. Attached the black triangles to the side of the plate and glue the grey triangle just below the eye holes. For the final step, tape the popsicle stick to the back of the plate. Taa-daa! Your Darth Vader mask is now complete!
Princess Leia Mask
Step 1: Sketch out the hairline and two circles for eye holes. Using your pen knife, cut the circles out.
Step 2: Paint the bottom half of the plate where the face will be in beige. Once that is completely dry, you can start painting in the hair area with the brown paint.
Step 3: Make sure that the paint is dried down before using a pink crayon to colour in two oval shapes for the cheeks. For the mouth, you can draw a small heart shape with a red crayon.
Step 4: Cut out the brown circles provided in the printable. Attached the circles to the side of the plate for Princess Leia’s famous hair buns. For the final step, tape the popsicle stick to the back of the plate.
Good luck, and may the Force be with you, mama!
