Star Wars Repurposed Milk Carton Kids Craft

Easy kids crafts are perfect for keeping them busy during the summer! This Star Wars repurposed craft is easy and fun if you have a little boy like me!

Yesterday, I wrote the following paragraph about our summer on my Facebook Page. Many of you felt my pain…

“My son is attacking an empty milk bottle with his Nerf gun while foam bullets hit me in the head and my daughter is singing at the top of her lungs yelling “What’s funny?” in between verses. Going to find some Asprin now:-) How is your summer going?”

After the Nerf gun, my Star Wars loving son got out his light saber and went nutso on the milk carton. At that point, and after getting rid of my headache, it was pretty comical.

I decided he needed an enemy to attack. He thought that was the best idea ever. So I carefully drew a Storm Trooper on the milk carton with a permanent marker.

It couldn’t be just any Star Wars storm trooper, but one that he specifically picked out. He would be featured on my blog, so it must be the BEST!

Please enjoy his posing. He worked hard on these! It was important to get each pose correct for all of the die hard Star Wars fans. Because you know George Lucas himself could see this.

Then he carefully set the enemy on the ottoman.

This entertained him for a while.

It ended up being a fun afternoon after all. Now we’ll be saving milk cartons to make an army of Storm Troopers!

  2. I love it, I love it!!! Made me laugh and remininsce about the past when my grown 6’6 ” & 6’8″ sons were this age and my two girls were off on their own projects but each would make tremendous noise and have such creative plaly!!! I laughed and smiled and thanked God for such wonderful times we enjoyed!!!

  3. Love it!!! Talk about hours of entertainment and fun, not to mention a spin on their imagination. My boys love Star Wars and we have milk jugs 🙂 Thanks. Btw I love the paint color on the walls…getting side tracked here lol. We are in the process of deciding a neutral paint color for our living room and yours look perfect. Could you share your paint color? Thanks. Ok the boys saw your post and want me to get right to it;0) If you could only hear and see the excitement in the voices and eyes…oh boy it’s going to be fun!

  4. I love your intro to the post. So honest, and funny!

    I think you know boys…this is something they would really like. I have two boys and have to remind myself and others that they really have a need for this kind of play.

  5. I’m pretty sure my 6 year old thinks you are THE coolest thing EVER now. He saw the thumbnail picture as I was scrolling Facebook, and he was like, “WAIT! WHATS THAT!!!??? CLICK ON IT CLICK ON IT!!!”

  6. LOL love it, my boys will like that idea too. Around our house the TV show “Deadliest Warriors” is a favorite. So my 6 year old takes boxes or plastic cups or really anything that can break and attacks them with various instruments – pencils, pens, straws, toothpicks, etc. and sees how much damage it will do. Then brings each and every one to me to show me how it would have “killed” or “look at that damage, Mommy”. He cracks me up. Now I’m wondering if he’ll be the warrior or the doctor assessing the damages!
