For the Love of LEGO - Puppets

So this is a fun, easy craft, plus my kids love anything LEGO or Star Wars and both is a dream come true.  I like the project element, cutting practice, and the free price tag.  Considering all the time my boys would like to spend on it is surprising we haven't discovered these print-ables before. The website suggests making stickers with these image downloads, but we didn't have the right paper.  E was the one who suggested puppets, so we dug out the Popsicle sticks.
The craft is easy - Print the downloadable sticker sheets you want and cut them out (we laminated ours anticipating heavy use and battles that plain paper cannot survive).  Next tape or glue to craft sticks (I normally like paint stir sticks for puppets, but these are kind of small figures).

Lastly duck down behind the couch and have a great time reenacting battles and key scenes from the movie - Don't be surprised if your Star Wars loving husband gets his hands on the puppets and secretly wants his own set.
