so who know's about origami yoda???...well if you have kids that are into diary of a wimpy kid, chances are you may know about this book series as well...and if they are fans you know that the secret of the fortune wookiee just came out (which is the 3rd book in the series!)
...the books are by Tom Angleberger and are about a bunch of 6th graders dealing with well, 6th grade issues....AND it combines star wars and origami so double win!
my almost 8 year old could not wait until the latest book came out and was over the moon when it came in the mail (pre-ordered on amazon)....!
the first book is about Dwight - an origami whiz who invented his own Origami Yoda finger puppet who gives sage advice to Dwight and other kids in class....in book 2, Yoda is challenged by another force, Darth Paper, a scorn-spewing puppet wielded by the hard-hearted Harvey....and the latest edition book 3 features a paper fortune-teller (remember those things from middle school??) in the form of Chewbacca (it's a Fortune Wookiee, get it?!) which seems to give advice that's just about as good as Yoda's....
|the books even tell you how to make your own characters!|
so to celebrate the latest book...made the kiddos some character pops....with my fav, melted candy wafers/candy melt....just taped some parchment onto the books and colored in with candy....also if you can't get candy melt/wafers, you can use melted white chocolate and tint with color (but be sure to use coloring for candy otherwise normal food coloring will mess up and bind the white chocolate)
...and then attach a stick - i just attached with more candy on the back
....and you get all the main origami characters in edible form.....in the fortune wookiee book, there is also his buddy Han Foldo....(get it? Han Foldo!!!! love!!)
....of course in the books, yoda and darth paper are enemies....
....and han and the fortune wookiee are still buds....
and is this the last book in the series?...."the end...this is not!" - says origami yoda
....thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
