Let the games begin. I love coming up with ideas for themed parties, I search the internet and try to improvise other games to match themes.
While we waited for all the kids to arrive and to make them comfortable so their folks could leave, we had out my son’s star wars figurines and legos. The kids were encouraged to put together a space ship. I also had a Star Wars coloring book and crayons but it went untouched.
What Star Wars party would not be complete with Light sabers. I did not want to spend $10 per child on a real one, plus I could not imagine the outcome of 9 plastic swords at the party.
I bought $1 pool noodles at the dollar store and $5 below. Of course mainly green for the jedi’s in training and red for Darth Vader. I measured them to match the size of the plastic version we have, 36 inches. Cut them with a miter saw, a bread knife would probably work too.
Wrap the bottoms with silver or grey duct tape and add some black and blue tape accents.
Make sure not to give these out until you are outside!
My older daughter and son were in charge of jedi training.
- They first learned moves with their light sabers, similiar to simon says.
- They then went through an obstacle course outside designed by my son and his friend. Going through tunnels, jumping over hula hoops, you get it.
- Then they were each given a black balloon and tried to keep the balloons up in the air with their light saber.
