The following post about the Star Wars Inspired Paper Plate BB-8, as well as Gift Card giveaway is sponsored by Fandango Family. Photos and details of Star Wars in the post are courtesy of Fandango and opinions expressed are that of my own.**
We are getting our tickets through Fandango, and they have really cool movie facts, costumes, and crafts at Fandango Family that I can’t wait to read through as well!
My 9 year old is a big fan of the series and since every young Jedi needs a DROID side kick, I created one via a easy children’s craft.
The Star Wars Inspired Paper Plate BB-8 is easy to make with minimal supplies and it is something that the entire family can enjoy.
To recreate the Star Wars Inspired Paper Plate BB-8 craft you will need the following:
3 Paper Plates
Orange construction paper
Black construction paper
Something to trace a larger circle with (I used a coffee cup)
First place cotton balls between 2 paper plates and then tape them together. Next fold a paper plate in half and cut out the center circle.
While in half place a few cotton balls inside and tape together. Then tape this to the top of the other plates.
Next, take the coffee cup and trace it on the orange paper.
Do this twice and then cut the shapes out. Fold these in half and then trace out 2 notches on one side and cut these out.
Keep one circle in tact and cut the other in half. Glue these to the large plate.
Then cut out small pieces of orange and glue those on as well.
Next, trace out a circle twice with the quarter and once with a nickel on the black construction paper.
Cut these out and then half one of the quarter circles and cut it into a thin ring.
Place the black circles on the top portion of the Star Wars Inspired Paper Plate BB-8.
Finally, take the silver crayon and add decoration to the body. I added circles and lines, as well as filled in some of the circles.
This Star Wars Inspired Paper Plate BB-8 is that easy to create and is a great way to celebrate the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
