We made this Easy Star Wars Craft for Kids! I love that my kiddos can play with an X Wing Fighter with their Star Wars toys. So fun! Make one too. Plus, enjoy a Princess Leia and R2D2 coloring page.
We are big Star Wars fans in our house.
Don’t believe me? We have done some pretty cool crafts on Instagram. We have made:
- Cardboard Tube Light Sabers,
- Darth Vadar Shirts,
- a Millennium Falcon out of a cardboard tube and cereal box
- and a Darth Vadar Card.
We build legos into Star Wars ships all the time. We have Star Wars books in our mini library. Movies. Puzzles. Toys. We love it!
So, of course, we had to make another Star Wars craft.
My son still is playing with the Millennium Falcon we made almost a year ago. So, he took pretty great care of it. When I asked him what we should make, he said an X Wing Fighter.
I had to use some brain activity for this one. But, I came up with a simple solution. All you need is a cardboard tube, jumbo craft sticks, paint and a knife. BAM! X Wing Fighter.
Read on for the instructions and a FREE Star Wars Coloring Page.
X Wing Star Wars Craft – Materials
- small cardboard tube
- kitchen knife
- white paint
- red paint
- foam brush
- small paint brush
- 2 jumbo craft sticks
X Wing Star Wars Craft – Instructions
Step One. Cut 4 slits on the back sides of the cardboard tube using the kitchen knife.
Step Two. Cut a square out of the top for a toy to sit in using the scissors.
Step Three. Setup your child’s painting station. Have him/her paint the cardboard tube and jumbo craft sticks white with a foam brush. Let them dry.
Step Four. Stick the jumbo craft sticks through the slits to make an X.
Step Five. Paint red designs on the X Wing. Let it dry.
Now, your child has an X Wing Fighter to play with! Have fun! And, “May the force be with you!”
My kiddos love coloring. Especially when mommy made the coloring page and it consists of their favorite characters. I asked them who I should doodle for them. My son said, “R2D2!” And my daughter, “Princess Leia!”
So, there you go! I did just that. I made a Princess Leia and R2D2 coloring page for you all.
We went a little further after coloring ours and made a May the 4th Be with You card.
We cut out the characters, glued them to the front of folded black paper, added a note in the inside and drew white stars with colored pencil all over it.
So, on May 4th we will be giving the card to someone who shares our love for Star Wars.
And if you’d like to draw R2D2, here is a guided drawing you can do with your kiddos:
