DIY Recycled Droid craft from All for the Boys blog. A fun Star Wars Day craft!

If you love Star Wars you may want to check out StarWars.com and/or the Star Wars Facebook page for some brand new Episode VII news! And since I know most of you DO love Star Wars you probably already know that May 4th is Star Wars Day – May the 4th be with you! Here is a fun craft you can make with recycled items already laying around the house!

  1. Oh so cute! Our almost ten year old is quite Star Wars mad at the moment (actually for the past couple of years to be honest) and he'll love this. Thanks.
