Inexpensive Star Wars Birthday

July 27, 2013

This summer both of my girls had a birthday, and we celebrated by having a Mega Star Wars Birthday Blowout. Here are some of the ideas we used (mostly from Pinterest) in case you’re interested in having an inexpensive Star Wars birthday too!

First, you need to have a brother-in-law who will give your kids light sabers and dress up like a Storm Trooper. Sorry, can’t help you there đŸ™‚

I found some $0.50 earmuffs at Michael’s, cut up an old brown sweater, got out my glue gun, and bought a bunch of brown yarn. It was time-consuming, but the Leia Buns Headbands were a big hit!

Cleverly-titled food tastes better. Everyone knows it’s true.

A Darth Vader pinata isn’t incredibly cheap, but I think it was worth it for the amount of fun the kids had!

Unrelated to the topic: instead of birthday presents each year my girls ask their guests to bring food for the food bank. It’s an idea I wish would catch on in popularity. My girls get PLENTY of presents from family, and this is a great way to teach them to give back! They come with me to deliver the items, and it really leads to some good discussions.
