DIY Angry Bird Star Wars Costumes

Okay, I'm going to apologize in advance because this will be the lamest blog post ever. I don't have actual tutorials. Sorry, sorry, sorry! I was in a frenzy to whip these costumes up and didn't take any pics during the process but I will tell you what I did. My kids wanted to be Angry Birds for Halloween, but not just the regular birds, no no that would be too easy. They wanted Angry Bird Star Wars! These seem complicated but they weren't that bad really. If you know how to sew, you should be able to duplicate just from looking at the pictures. I barely know how to sew and I figured it out. But if you don't sew, you you can still make these. Seriously. You just need a glue gun and some patience... and some band-aids probably (for the glue gun burns) 

I just went to Google and searched for the characters we wanted. Printed out large images of their faces to use as templates. I used felt to cut out all the faces and glued them to the front of the costumes with a hot glue gun. 

My son has been working on sight words and word families so I decided to create some activities around his interests: Mario Brothers, Ninja Turtles, Lego, and Pokemon. I am providing free printable pages to create these games at the bottom of the post. I recommend laminating as much of these as you can in order to keep them durable for continued use. If you are unable to laminate them I would definitely recommend printing on cardstock. I hope your little one enjoys these as much as mine is. For us, there is no better way to learn than through play!
