Stop the Clanker troops from advancing! "Clanker Bowling" was designed as a game for a Star Wars party. The party was in the winter, so we needed indoor games that would focus the interest of wiggly 4-6 year olds. What jedi wouldn't want to restore peace in the galaxy by knocking down a battalion of battle droids?
Find a template, if you want to try battle droid bowling yourself. However, I'm sure you can come up with an even neater design! Let me know how it goes!
I used tagboard (like the kind enclosed with calendars to keep pages straight) for the arms, neck, and head. Thin corregated cardboard (really thin!) worked great for the body and legs-- a little stiffer for support yet still easy to cut. A brass brad attaches the arm pieces together (hole punch the pieces first). I used gold spray paint for the droids, Alene's tacky glue for the joints, and 3D fabric paint for the eyes.
