Whether you’re celebrating Star Wars Day (officially May the 4th) or you’re doing a family movie marathon, this is such a cute and easy Star Wars craft idea! This Princess Leia paper plate craft only requires some construction paper, glue, scissors and a paper plate. I love easy crafts for kids that don’t require specialty items – you probably already have most of this around your home. Princess Leia is definitely a Disney princess in my mind and this is a fun way to honor her.
How To Put Together This Star Wars Craft Idea
This craft is perfect for young hands who are growing their fine motor skills. With a little bit of help from an adult, ages 4+ can crate their own version. Ages 6+ can make one on their own without any help. This Star Wars craft idea is a great way to celebrate Star Wars Day (May the 4th).
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 1 Paper Plate
- Popsicle stick, if desired
- Printable Leia Paper Plate templates
To use a print and cut device (such as Cricut Explore), use the PNG images. Upload to your machine software. Resize the main hair image so it is 8.5 inches in width. Resize the hair bun image to 5 inches in width and make TWO. (If desired, flip the second image horizontally prior to printing to have a symmetrical hair bun.) Resize the facial features image to 2.5 inches in height.
If not using the print and cut option, print the PDF and cut pieces apart.
Decorate the paper plate by attaching pieces with glue.
Glue or tape the paper plate to the popsicle stick. Allow the craft to dry completely before playing or displaying.
