Blast off on a Mandalorian themed day of crafts, snacks, and rewatching your favorite episodes. This is the way!

The Mandalorian was the big breakout Disney+ hit of 2020, no question. Whether you’re a die-hard Star Wars fan or just jumped on the bandwagon after falling in love with the adorable Grogu, the whole family can get in on the adventure with a Mandalorian-themed day of activities, crafts, snacks, and (of course) repeat viewings of your favorite episodes. So strap in, make sure you have your Beskar armor, and get ready to explore the galaxy. This is the way!
Before you head to the Razor Crest, you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared for the day. That includes fueling up on a big breakfast. If you’re feeling extra creative, head to She Saved’s blog to see how to make Yoda out of bacon and eggs. If bacon and eggs aren’t your thing, you might want to dig into some waffles for fuel: Choose from a Mandalorian helmet or Grogu in waffle form. (Bonus points for dyeing the batter green for Grogu waffles.)
Don Your Armor
Zygote Brown Designs
Now that you’ve built up your inner strength, it’s time to prep your Mandalorian armor. For the armor, you’ll need cardboard, tape, strong glue, a craft blade to cut out the cardboard (with parental supervision!), and this template. Follow along with the instructions and you’ll soon have your own Mandalorian helmet. Once the helmet is ready to go, decorate it however you’d like, for your own signature look.
Set Your Coordinates
It’s time to fire up the first season of The Mandalorian on Disney+. If it’s your first time watching the show, spend some time binging the first season. If you’ve already seen the first season, challenge yourself to these Mandalorian activity sheets while you watch along. See if you can name one item for each letter of the alphabet in the Mandalorian universe. Once you’ve mastered that challenge, check out the word search and word scramble.
Use The Force
When you’ve made your way through season one, take a break to refuel. Bring the spirit of the galaxy along with you into the kitchen by firing up Spotify to blast the series soundtrack while you make your snacks. The music will make you feel like you are exploring Tatooine or planning a new mission with Shand and Boba Fett, even if you're just raiding the cookie jar.
Now that you’ve set the proper mood, prep some Mandalorian-themed snacks for the binge-watch of the second season. First up on the snack list: Adorable Baby Yoda Oreos. These cookies are so simple to make, even your youngest padawans can help. The treats are made using green candy melts, Oreos, and M&Ms. Find the full tutorial on Divine Lifestyle’s site.
Don't Eat The Frog Lady's Eggs
The Country Cook
If you want to make something right out of the show, check out these lookalike blue cookies from the second season. These little blue treats from The Country Cook are so good you’ll need Jedi powers to keep them for yourself.
Now that you have something sweet, it’s time for something salty. Baby Yoda nachos will not only make you laugh but will be great to munch on while you binge-watch the second season. Follow the instructions to make Baby Yoda out of guacamole.
Find Your Next Mission
Head back to the couch and press play on season two of The Mandalorian. If you’ve already seen the second season, pick out your favorite episodes to see if you spot anything new. Can’t decide which one to watch? Check out our ranking of the best episodes from the past two seasons.
Bring Grogu Home
Simple Everyday Life
Now that you’ve finished your binge, it’s time to make some keepsake crafts. If you are looking for your own Grogu to play with, make a homemade version. This craft from Simple Everyday Mom turns a paper bag into the lovable, surprisingly strong Grogu.
Make New Friends
Ruffles and Rainboots
Here’s another fun craft that lets you make new friends without having to travel to a faraway galaxy to do it (or to stock up on supplies): Create Grogu and Mando from paper towel roll in this DIY craft from Ruffles and Rainboots.
Discover Your Inner Jedi
For a more advanced project that requires more detail, definitely check out this DIY Baby Yoda Plushie from Whispered Inspirations. The small craft will show you how to make Grogu out of felt, allowing you to bring him along for your adventures!
Travel to a Galaxy Far Far Away
While you wait for season three of The Mandalorian to hit Disney+, take Mando and Grogu on an adventure of your own. Build Mando’s ship out of LEGO and travel the galaxy, seeing what adventures await you. If you want to hang out with Grogu, this LEGO set will be right up your alley. And don’t worry about keeping Grogu entertained while you work—the set comes with his favorite gearshift knob.
To hold you over until the third season, dive deeper into the details with Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian. The new docu-series takes an even deeper look into the galaxy, making the adventures with Mando and Grogu even more fun.
