If your child loves Star Wars, there’s a good chance he will love a Star Wars birthday party. Fortunately, Star Wars parties are easy to put together. We have come up with some ideas to help you get started.
Star Wars Birthday Party Invitations
You need to start the party planning process by sending out invitations. If you want to get creative with your invitations, use the Star Wars Crawl creator to send electronic invitations to your guests.
The Crawl Creator simulates the opening sequence of the Star Wars movies. You can use the Crawl Creator to type up your own invitation and then send it to everyone on your invite list. The invitation will resemble the opening sequence of the Star Wars movies, so your potential guests will immediately know that the party has a Star Wars theme.
If you don’t want to use this option, consider sending standard invitations. You can find Star Wars invitations at most party stores. Simply purchase them, fill them out, and mail them to everyone you want to invite.
Star Wars Birthday Party Games
You want the kids to have fun from the moment they arrive until the moment they leave, so you need to pack the party full of games. Start with a Jedi Training Course. You will need to come up with different obstacles the kids can go through to become a Jedi. You can have them crawl through chairs, run through tires, or do a move with a light saber. They will need to pass each of the stations, and then they will receive a Jedi certificate.
Light saber training is another exciting game for kids to play at a Star Wars Party. You will need to supply each child with a light saber and a balloon. You can purchase light sabers or make them out of pool noodles. Just put some electrical tape on the end of the noodle for a handle, and the kids will be able to use their imaginations and pretend they are real light sabers.
The kids will need to keep the balloon in the air by hitting it with their light sabers. When the balloon hits the ground, the child must start over. Those who manage to keep their balloons in the air for a predetermined amount of time will receive a certificate that says they passed light saber training.
Star Wars Party Favors
While the kids will enjoy getting their certificates, they will want some other toys as well. Fortunately, there are lots of affordable favors available for Star Wars birthday parties. If the party if for little kids, go to the bookstore and get some of the Star Wars books for early readers. These paperback books are just a few dollars each, and will certainly put a smile on your guests’ faces.
Star Wars wrist bands are another hot option. Kids love having their own Star Wars wrist bands, and you can find them for around a dollar each. Therefore, they are affordable and fun.
The “Star Wars Feel the Force Chinese Yo Yo” is another great option. These yo-yos are shaped like light sabers, so the kids will really get a kick out of them.
Now you are ready to start planning for a Star Wars birthday party. Begin with the invitations, and work your way down the list. Before you know it, everything will be ready and you can sit back and enjoy the smile on your child’s face.
