But she isn't narrow minded. She also loves Star Wars. Now, I know that historically Star Trek fans and Star Wars fans tended to be polarized. I get it. I certainly love Star Trek more than Star Wars. But my daughter just loves adventure and space. Once I saw George Takei's appeal for Star Peace - a truce between Star Trek and Star Wars fans - I knew we needed to add a bit of Star Wars into her room as well.
Here is how we did it.
Materials: unfinished wooden knobs, styrofoam cups, sand paper, ModgePodge, brush, pictures.
First, we took her
She very carefully cut out pictures of some of her favorite Star Wars characters. I had printed them out as thumbnails on regular paper.
Then all we had to do was put each picture on a knob and "paint" them with the ModgePodge. She wanted them shiny, so we used high gloss.
In no time at all, she had six customized Star Wars knobs for her dresser. She is a happy little geekling.
