DIY Star Wars BB-8 Charm

Star Wars BB-8 Charm DIY

We can’t get enough of BB-8. He was our favorite character in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” even before we saw the movie. With the upcoming winter storms approaching, I spent a lot of time thinking of some fun crafts to keep the kids occupied with this DIY Stars Wars BB-8 charm being our favorite craft yet. When the rain didn’t actually come, we didn’t let it stop us from making these adorable charms, and they are so simple that your kids can make along with you!
