Okay, we’ll admit it: we’re a little bit nerdy sometimes. So when May 4th—aka Star Wars Day—rolls around, we can’t help but say: “May the fourth be with you.” Fans of the classic trilogy will know that this play on words is a nod to the famous movie line “may the force be with you.” If your kids have never seen the flicks, we say break out the popcorn bowl and enjoy a family movie night!

To help you celebrate all things Star Wars, we headed over to StarWars.com and found the perfect craft: a Chewbacca sock puppet.

What you’ll need:
• Some fake “fur” (check your local craft store)
• An old sock
• Scissors
• A needle and thread
• One black button
• Pipe cleaners
• Googly eyes
• Brown and grey felt

The site offers a printable version of the full “Chewie” puppet instructions, which is excerpted from The Star Wars Craft Book. Looking for another Star Wars-y idea? You can’t go wrong with these Princess Leia cupcakes.

Have your kids seen Star Wars? Who’s their favourite character? Who’s yours?
