Some parents use the Fourth for good. Others, for evil.
Um, today's we're just going to focus on the good ones.
Yep, in honor of all of the Star Wars celebrating today, I've got some fantastic kids' room crafts I've been saving up - and the very best part? They're all made by you Epbot readers!

Well, Kimber decided that next her kids' playroom needed a little something. You know, like an X-Wing-fighter-fleeing-an-Imperial-Cruiser-over-the-planet-Earth kind of something.
And now, the very thing every Star Wars bedroom needs:

And what a scene it is!
Check it out, I found the original piece that inspired that last scene:
Rock on, Jason! And the rest of you can see more of McQuarrie's art (which really is amazing) here.
And finally, for you parents out there who may not want to tackle murals or woodworking: how about
