Celebrating World Book Day – Star Wars style

World Book Day 2016 takes place on Thursday 3rd March, a day to celebrate the wonderful world of books and authors.  Books have a way of touching our lives, starting from when little ones are just starting to read like Tigger who is now seeing the world differently now that he can read.  Moving on to Roo, the child who likes to read and is loving the different worlds that are created within the pages of her story books.  To the adult who likes to find new novels to read but will always go back to the classics that she loves.

Celebrating World Book Day – Star Wars style

This World Book Day we are celebrating Star Wars style, with new Egmont Star Wars books to read and interactive with along with creating Star Wars costumes.

How to make last-minute Star Wars costumes

A combination of last-minute notifications from the school and a dash of procrastination means that World Book Day costumes are a last-minute affair.  So I wanted to show you how to make last-minute Star Wars costumes using items from around the home.  They are all centred around printable Star Wars masks which you can simply print off, stick on a piece of cardboard to add some rigidity to it or laminate like I did.

Darth Vader

Star Wars - Darth Vader costume

  • Black long-sleeved top, trousers and shoes
  • Darth Vader printable Star Wars mask
  • Black bag or towel to make the cape
  • Lightsaber – we just used a light stick we had from a fireworks display but you could make your own using the tube found inside wrapping paper which you could then paint red and black

Stormtrooper

  • White long-sleeved top and trousers
  • Stormtrooper printable Star Wars mask

Chewbacca

  • Brown long-sleeved top and trousers or a blanket wrapped round and tied around the waist
  • Chewbacca printable Star Wars mask

Giveaway

To celebrate World Book Day, Boo Roo and Tigger Too have teamed up with Egmont to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a set of three Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space books.
