12 DIY Star Wars Lightsaber crafts

Tomorrow is May 4th! Why is that important? Well it is an iconic day for many geeky Star Wars fans. It is the day that we get to go around and shout “May the fourth be with you!” carrying lightsabers and acting like Star Wars is the best thing since moving pictures (who am I kidding, it is the best thing). Of course I can often be found stating, “May the force be with you” in everyday conversation, however, May 4th just adds an extra touch of Star Wars happiness to all our lives.



In celebration of May the Fourth Be With You, I have searched the far reaches of space for information on building a lightsaber. I have found 12 fun DIY crafts that are both easy to create and fun to play with. Some actually light up, others are crocheted, while others are as simple as print and create. Simply click the images below to hyperspace over to the instructions and pictures.

Once you and your family have created their lighsabers, please remember that we are Jedi and we use our abilities for knowledge and defense, never for attack. The ways of the sith have no power on May 4th.

Alice in Wonderland - Cheshire Cat

Alice in Wonderland – Cheshire Cat

The Cheshire cat is mad, but then again most everyone is mad in Wonderland. The Cheshire Cat is just very proud to admit it and uses it to his advantage. When Cheshire finds Alice in the woods, his unique personality helps her find a way to the Queen of Hearts and possibly a way home. During this encounter we learn that the Cheshire Cat can disappear at will, change shape, transport himself and perhaps even others to another location and almost seem omnipresent. If that wasn’t crazy enough, Cheshire has a constant smile on his face that is almost unsettling, then again he is mad, which in itself is unsettling.

Cheshire is one of the most sensible characters in Wonderland and seems to be the smartest. It is almost like he knows all and sees all. Unfortunately for Alice, Cheshire has a mad sense of humor and loves to cause chaos as seen with the Queen of Hearts. However, there are theories that his mad behavior towards the Queen of Hearts is what got Alice home, because in all of the chaos she woke up.



To commemorate the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, LEGO has created an awesome minifigure depicting the Cheshire Cat with his rather large smile and striped fur.

In honor of the Cheshire Cat becoming a LEGO Minifigure, I have created a Lego Minifigure Cheshire Cat coloring page! Simply download, print, and color for Lots of Lego Fun! Best part is this coloring page is free! However, if you like it and download it, please consider donating.

Speaking of their official website, I discovered something rather awesome. On The Jungle Book site, Disney has supplied all of us fans and parents with an Educator’s Guide to the Jungle book and an Activity pack for the kids. DisneyNature has also helped create a glossary of animals with specific traits and facts kids will love to learn.

With this information, we can turn this movie into an awesome learning experience about the animals that live in the jungle, The hardships of the jungle, and so much more. The Educator’s Guide is great for teachers who may want to do a lesson on the jungle to help their students explore the jungle world. It is also great for parents who want to help their kid learn abut the jungle as well.

Info about The Jungle Book:

Directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, The Jungle Book is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela.

The Jungle Book seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016. The Jungle Book site

Disney describes the cupcakes as perfect additions to any party or happy Saturday,

In The Jungle Book, Mowgli helps his best friend Baloo collect plenty of honey from beehives around the jungle. Whether you’re throwing a jungle-themed party, or want to celebrate a happy Saturday, these honey cupcakes are the perfect way to add one of mother nature’s ingredients to a tasty treat. To complete the look, ice with jungle green frosting and top with a paper leaf cutout.

Alice in Wonderland - Alice

Alice in Wonderland – Alice LEGO Minifigure

How do you get to Wonderland? Just ask Alice. This blonde little girl gets herself into all kinds of trouble because she is so curious. When she sees a white rabbit with a watch, she immediately follows the little guy into a rabbit hole and falls to Wonderland. Her adventure is full of all kinds of nonsense, including talking animals, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, a Mad Hatter Tea Party, and let’s not forget the Queen of Hearts. Hold onto your heads!

Perhaps, I will stay in the real world and not figure out how to get to wonderland. Honestly, I would like to keep my sanity and my head. When the most sense comes from a Cheshire Cat that can disappear when it wants, I’d say reality is my best friend.



To commemorate Alice from Alice in Wonderland, LEGO has created an awesome minifigure depicting Alice in her blue dress holding a bottle that says Drink Me and a small morsel of food. Do you remember which one makes her bigger and which one makes her smaller?

In honor of Alice becoming a LEGO Minifigure, I have created a Lego Minifigure Alice coloring page! Simply download, print, and color for Lots of Lego Fun!
