Star Wars Birthday

Planning a Star Wars Birthday, I have to admit, was as much fun for me as it ended up being for the dragons. Growing up in a family with a mother who saw A New Hope in theaters sixteen times– I could not become an oddity that doesn’t like the Star Wars universe.

The first thing to plan was the food. Besides our decent Star Wars cake (that did not turn out how I planned at all), the Yoda Soda and the Light Saber Pretzels were a big hit. The decorations (all purchased from Target) were super easy. I also made the popcorn extra fun by throwing in some galaxy sprinkles, and we pretended that the teddy grahams were Ewoks.

Next was some target practice. Since Storm Troopers don’t have very good aim, there was nothing better to shoot at! My birthday dragon did not want me to add a Darth Vader to the stack, since Darth Vader is his favorite character ( “Even though I still root for the good guys now.”).

We always try to do a craft, too, if time allows it. The dragons really enjoyed making their own droids, which all turned out to look like R2D2.

When the party died down, we ended the day by watching The Force Awakens, which was the film we were on in our viewing order. Do you have a favorite Star Wars film? I know it’s probably sacrilegious, but I absolutely love Rogue One. I’m not sure I would say it’s my favorite, but it’s definitely up there. I’m not sure I can truly pick a favorite.

Share your pictures if you have a party or Star Wars Day with some of our ideas!
