Spend the Day Reading and Rock Painting With Chewie and the Porgs
Thanks to a little help from StarWars.com, we’ve got your tomorrow afternoon all planned out! Chewbacca himself, Joonas Suotamo, recently read a delightful Disney story to help us stay busy during our time at home. Chewie and the Porgs is a light-hearted adventure set on Ach-To and is the ultimate picture book for the young padawans in your family.
Not only is there something extra special about having Chewie read a bedtime story about Chewie, but the folks at Star Wars have also combined it with an awesome DIY activity where you can make Chewy and Porg-themed rocks for your garden!
Let’s start with Joonas who takes us through this awesome read:
One of our favorite parts of the book is how Chewie isn’t fooled by the porgs who are pretending to be rocks on the island. To remember this special moment, why don’t we paint some rocks so that you can play hide and seek in your back yard just like Chewie did with the porgs in the story!?
Chewie and the Porgs Painted Rocks
Here’s What You’ll Need
- Medium oval-shaped rocks
- Black, white, brown, blue, and pink acrylic paint
Let’s Get Started!
Step 1: First, wash the rocks and make sure they are completely dry before you get started.
Step 2: While the rocks are drying, look through the book (or video) and try to pick out some of your favorite faces that Chewie and the Porgs make.
Step 3: Start by painting one rock completely brown (this will be for Chewie.) For the second rock, paint a curved v-shape point at the very top of the porg rock.
Step 4: Let’s put the Chewie rock aside for now and continue with the Porg rock. Start by painting the middle of the porg rock with white paint and let dry.
Step 5: Next, use the black paint to make the porg’s big eyes and whatever expression you like from the book.
Step 6: If you want to add some extra detail, once the black paint is dry you can use the white paint to make the reflections in the porg’s eyes.
Step 7: Then, mix together the black and white paint to make grey, and add feathers to the porg’s belly.
Step 8: Set the porg aside to dry and start working on Chewie.
Step 9: Once all of the brown paint is dry, use the white paint to make two half-circles for Chewie’s eyes at the top of the rock.
Step 10: Paint a small black oval for his nose and use the pink paint for his mouth.
Step 11: Use the blue paint to create Chewie’s irises and then the black paint for the pupils.
Step 12: Paint a small oval of grey paint on the nose.
Step 13: Paint two small fangs on Chewbacca’s mouth and add reflections to his eyes with the white paint.
Step 14: Last but not least you can use black paint to give Chewbacca some fur.
Chewbacca and the porg are ready to play together in your back yard!
You can use these painted rocks to play hide and seek by hiding them in the grass, play pretend to reenact your favorite part of Chewie and the Porgs. When you’re done you can also use them as decoration in your garden.
