Star Wars Day 2020 in Singapore
1. Video Conference from a Galaxy Far, Far Away – Star Wars Backgrounds

2. Upcycle Your Toilet Paper Roll into Star Wars Characters
What do you do with all those toilet paper rolls which were so coveted? Here’s an idea. Turn them into your favourite Star Wars characters.
Download a template from StarWars.com and choose to create characters like Rey, Ben Solo and Chewbacca with this simple Star Wars craft. All it takes is some paper, colouring materials and, yes, a toilet paper roll core. We hope you’ve been saving those! Our favourite amongst the characters has to be BB-8.
Get ready to “roll out”!
3. Star Wars Craft – A Bookmark That Is Strong With the Dark Side
Sticking with the idea of Star Wars crafts, check out this cool Darth Maul bookmark that you can easily make at home. Have the Sith Lord keep the spot for you in whatever book you are reading.
For a real power up, check out the awesome lightsaber and bookmarks made by Vector Custom Engraving and available on Etsy here.
4. Star Wars Recipes
It seems as if many of us are discovering our inner chefs during this period of time. For Star Wars Day 2020 at home in Singapore, how about trying out some Star Wars inspired recipes?
We think these Yoda (or is Baby Yoda) pancakes are cool.
Or how about Blue Milk pudding? If it is good enough for Luke Skywalker, it is good enough for us.
We really like these Fruit Tie Fighters made from apple slices. They are easy to make and healthy too. Fruit X-wing fighters would probably be a lot harder to put together. Maybe we can try making them with a carrot and four potato chips?
There are plenty of Star Wars recipes that you can make at home for Star Wars Day 2020 available at StarWars.com.
5. Build a Bot
Build and control your own R2D2 with a littleBits kit. You can assemble it and learn about tech at the same time. After completing it, use your smart device to control it around the home. Check out our full review of the Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit here.
