What a wonderful world we live in where Star Wars gets a holiday because Star Wars fans said so. This is a fandom I can support! I’ve got a big collection of May the Fourth crafts for kids (but also for adults, because it’s just so fun!).
May the Fourth Crafts for Kids
What is May the Fourth?
May the Fouth is a Star Wars holiday that takes place on, well, May 4th. It takes place on May 4th because “May the fourth” sounds an awful lot like, “May the force…” (be with you!).
Where did May the Fourth come from?
My research (very quick and not super thorough) says we started celebrating Star Wars Day, aka May the Fourth, back in 2008 when some superfans next-leveled their Star Wars obsession by celebrating Luke Skywalker. And it all sort of exploded from there. If you want to get really detailed, the origin goes back to 1979 and involed Margaret Thatcher, but this is a craft site so we’re just going to reel it back in to what this post is really about: Star Wars crafts.
