How to make Star Wars X-Wing crayon party favors

One of our favorite little Jedis celebrated his fifth birthday recently and we wanted to make something fun for his goodie bags.

Star Wars Leia Hot Wheels Van Car

Top Ten Star Wars Hot Wheels

We have to admit that when we were growing up we weren’t that into toy cars (unless you count our amazing Charlie’s Angels van). Things would have been different if Hot Wheels had made these in the 70s. Luckily for our kids, they are available now. Predictably, our list is heavy on droids, heroes and Leia […]

Yoda meringue cookies piped

Yummy Yoda meringue cookies

Write this post in Yoda-speak we will not. At least we’ll try. Oh wait, there is no try. Whew, now that the Yoda jokes are out of the way, let’s talk about meringues. They are an incredibly simple and underrated cookie. We found a great recipe for double vanilla meringues here, but you can use your favorite […]

Princess Leia Buns for Beanie Boos

Everyone in our house is excited about tomorrow being May the fourth, even the Beanie Boos! This bunny wanted to try out Princess Leia buns and we couldn’t say no. You will definitely need a glue gun for this one – the pipe cleaners won’t stay curled for long enough for regular glue to set. […]

Matching Star Wars outfit for girls and American Girl dolls

This is definitely the droid fabric you’re looking for. We found it at our local Jo-Ann Fabrics and immediately had to jump in line to buy enough for our little Jedis and their American Girl dolls.

Simple BB-8 Clay Charm Video Tutorial

Yes, it’s another BB-8 project. We just love the simplicity of this droid’s shape and couldn’t resist making one out of polymer clay. All you need are three colors of clay and some simple jewelry supplies. Both are readily available at craft stores (such as Michaels) or on Amazon. This time, we’ve created the tutorial […]

Star Wars Card Trading for Kids – Expert Tips to Get Started

What is more exciting and full of possibilities than an unopened pack of trading cards? Not much. We loved trading Star Wars cards as kids and the bug seems to have bitten all of our little Jedis. We know that the world of trading cards has changed a bit since the seventies and eighties, so […]

Just Ewok It (or How to Make Anything Into an Ewok)

Last week Disney released the new Star Wars Tsum Tsums. They are predictably adorable and we immediately ran out to pick up a couple. When we hit our local store around mid-day, they still had tons of everything except Ewoks. We were lucky enough to grab two of the last four and then started thinking […]

BB-8 Star Wars Valentine Card Tutorial

BB-8 + Galactic Glitter = love 4 ever! It’s already mid-February and we’re finally busting out the scissors. With very few materials and a glue stick, you can have these cute valentines ready for your favorite Wookie. To get started, we gathered some pre-made cards with envelopes, orange and grey paper, and black brads from […]

American Girl Doll BB-8 costume tutorial

Guess what. Dolls love Star Wars too! At least that’s what we’ve been told. Of course they love wearing matching outfits, but they also like having complimentary costumes when it’s this obvious (here is our Easy 30-minute Rey costume tutorial). The only thing cuter than BB-8 is a doll or stuffed animal dressed as BB-8. […]
