May The 4th is Star Wars Day, an annual celebration for Star Wars fans all about enjoying things from a galaxy far, far away. The date was chosen for the pun on the catchphrase, “May the Force be with you,” which sounds a lot like May the Fourth be with you. Today I am sharing crafts, costumes, and so much more to help you celebrate May The 4th with your family and friends!

Dress up! You can check out our costumes here.

Let's make a Chewbacca pencil holder. You will need brown craft fur, black felt, white felt, googly eyes, 1 black pom pom, 1 empty soup can, and a glue gun. Glue the fur around the soup can, add googly eyes and a nose. Add a thin strip of black felt for the belt and cut white rectangles and add on the black felt belt and glue it on horizontally. Add some pencils and you are done.

Craft your own Wookie! You need a paper bag, brown, black, red, white paper, googly eyes, scissors and glue. Cut brown paper into 4x5 inch rectangles. You will need 6 rectangles. Cut strips half way up to make fur for your Wookie. Two go on the front of the bag, and then lift the flap and begin overlapping the rest of the rectangles. Add eyes, nose, a tongue, belt and you are done.

Let's make Yoda ears! All you need is glue, a headband, and green paper. Take some green paper and free hand some Yoda ears and cut them out. Glue the ears toward the bottom of the headband. I used a hot glue gun for extra security. Now you have your very own Yoda ears and you are ready for May The 4th!
