Every year I do a Star Wars Craft Workshop for kids at one of the coolest and geekiest science and craft conventions in the San Francisco Bay Area — Maker Faire.
Craftsters, robot wranglers, science geeks, rocket builders, artists, steampunks and more gather together once a year to make cool stuff, share their crafting secrets with the public, give tutorials and have a lot of fun.
Past Star Wars craft workshops included how to make marble magnets, Yoda dolls, Cantina puppets, Admiral Ackbar bag puppets, Ewok sock puppets, and Yoda Finger Puppets. This year, the craft was the Bith Band Spoon Puppets and Yoda Finger Puppets.
At the Star Wars Puppet Craft Workshop, kids and their parents made Yoda stick puppets, Bith spoon puppets, Princess Leia puppets and there was even a Clone Wars Chicken Puppet!
The San Francisco Cantina Band stopped by to entertain the crafty crowd too!
