Tips to Make Star Wars Toilet Paper Roll Kids Crafts

  • Add a lightsaber to your character to make it even more detailed. All you need is a cake pop stick or toothpick painted red on one end and grey on the other!
  • It would be nothing to make some stormtroopers to the fight with Darth against the Jedi. Just swap white for black on this pattern and you’re there.
  • You could even make a death star from a circle of grey paper and play out the entire storyline. Except the whole prequels thing….we’re not going there.
