Here are the supplies:

 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 cup salt

– 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
– 2 cups water

– 1/4 cup glitter (or more to your liking)
– 2 teaspoons pure mint extract (not pictured in above photo)

You can find the directions HERE.

Death Star Crayon Resist Craft:

This one really excites me. I love doing crayon resist projects with kids as a teacher. They love it and it ties science in with art.  Plus you can do any film or franchise with this technique. The directions for this one come from Fun-A-Day.

Here is the supply list:

  • White cupcake liners  (paper also works)
  • Gray and black crayons (any colored crayons will work)
  • Black watercolors (regular watercolors will work in any color)

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 1997-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
