If the thought of a ginormous papercraft
floats your boat, then you’ll be delighted to know it actually
exists! Print off the patterns, follow the instructions, and a
Millennium Falcon can take centre stage in your home.
My son turns four soon and despite never having seen the films,
he’s obsessed with Star Wars. He knows all the characters’ names and
got so excited seeing the big posters of them at the Powerhouse Museum.
“There’s Yoda, there’s R2D2!” he exclaimed as we walked in.
Constructing the Millennium Falcon would be an absorbing activity for pre-teen kids and teenagers looking to fill in time in the holidays. But even a child as young as my four year old could enjoy helping an adult construct the spacecraft. Observing and experimenting with spatial concepts, helping to fold, and having such a grand and satisfying end result are all beneficial for young children. Print it off and fill in the weekend!
