Star Wars Family Command Center

Get your family organized with a Star Wars Family Command Center! We made ours from an old magnetic dry erase board we had lying around. (We put chalkboard contact paper on half of it.) There’s a variety of ways you can create yours and we’ve got a printable quote plus printable Star Wars planets you can make magnets from.

We’ll also show you how to quickly turn a plastic chalk holder into a lightsaber! Add a small family photo for each person, a catch all box and some hooks and you’ve got a spot everyone can keep track of what’s going on in the family. (P.S. For those who have a Silhouette cutting machine we have those files for download in addition to the pdfs.)

We’ve got two versions for you. The first is a PDF. The quote is only the size that a normal sheet of paper will allow. The second is for those who have a Silhouette cutting machine which allows you to cut out longer quotes on vinyl.

THE CATCH ALL BOX

You could use a variety of boxes, even a cereal box, for a holder on your family command center. I had a long mailing box that was the perfect size so I used that. Just cut off the top, cover it something or paint it, then glue it on your board. Make a Star Wars Family Command Center! Use our free printable quote and planets for magnets.

FAMILY PHOTOS

We grabbed some small flat frames at our local Dollar store. They didn’t need to be painted as they were already the right color… bonus! You could also attach plain photos to your board with no frames!Make a Star Wars Family Command Center! Use our free printable quote and planets for magnets.

CHALK LIGHTSABER
