Disney’s The Mandalorian gave fans a lot of things to be happy about. From Pedro Pascual’s portrayal of the titular character to the appearance of Boba Fett and Ahsoka Tano, fans new and old were immediately drawn to the show.
One of the things that stood out the most since it first appeared was Grogu, or as fans have dubbed him, “Baby Yoda.” This adorable force sensitive being from the same race as Yoda can be brought home from a galaxy far far away with these 20 Baby Yoda crafts.
Note: I recommend kids use safety scissors for the crafts that require cutting.
