Taking the Scissors to ‘Star Wars’ on a Rainy Day

Reading Time: 2 minutes

maibaum_starwars_bannerIn many regions of Bavaria, Germany, it is customary for towns and villages to raise a “maypole” every five years on the First of May. Germany and many other European countries celebrate labor day on May 1st; as a holiday, it is a perfect day for a family outing to the next village in which a maypole is raised that particular year.

This May 1st, however, it had been raining nonstop from morning ’til evening, and the family categorically declined to take but a single step outside. So, some other form of entertainment was required.

Child #2 came up with the answer: he remembered some Star Wars figures we had cut out and assembled some time ago and wanted to use the opportunity to craft some more. And this we did.

So, if you should find yourself in dire need for occupying Star Wars fans young and old during a rainy holiday, simply type “cubeart star wars” into your favorite picture search engine.

You will find enough material for several rainy holidays!
