Take a look at these personalized Star Wars Party invitations:
- Choose black and gold as the colors for streamers, balloons, and table covers.
- Gather all the Star Wars toys you own to use as table decorations. Use Darth Vader’s head as the centerpiece.
- Play Star Wars music during the entire party to help set the mood.
- Tie a balloon to the back of each chair, and tie a group of five balloons to the birthday child’s chair.
- Make a Jedi Robe for each guest using this pattern I found online.
- Here is another, easier pattern for making Jedi Robes.
- Or for a really quick robe, just use adult XL black t-shirts with a rope belt.
- Craft link to make various Star Wars masks.
Set up the games as a Jedi Training Course with different activities to build their Jedi skills.
- Light Saber Training – Make light sabers for each guest before the party using empty wrapping paper tubes or pool noodles cut in half. Wrap one end in duct tape for the handle. Add some red nail polish as the “on” button. Tell the guests they must practice their light saber skills. Then toss lots of balloons filled with air (not helium) into the air. The Jedi trainees must use their light sabers to keep the balloons afloat without hitting another Jedi.
- Bombing Skills – Before the party, draw a large Death Star on the driveway using chalk. Explain to the guests that accurate bombing is very important when battling the forces of the dark side. Give each guest five water balloons and tell them to “bomb” the Death Star. When the water balloons break, the water will wash away the chalk drawing.
- Face Your Fear – Just like Luke Skywalker when he went through the cave while training with Yoda, all Jedi’s must learn to face their fears. Use a large appliance box that the kids can crawl through like a cave, and hang pictures of Darth Vader and other villains inside. Use a CD player nearby filled with scary sounds from the movies like Darth Vader breathing and other villains speaking. Put a bowl of Star Wars treats at the end of the cave as a reward. Then send the kids through the cave one at a time.
- Jedi Teamwork – Play this game in the yard or a large room. Provide the guests with two pieces of plywood and tell them the floor is covered with flaming hot lava. They must work together as a team to cross the lava field by walking on the boards. Let the kids think about this task and offer advice only if they are really stumped. The solution is to place the boards end to end and begin walking over the lava. Then some team members will need to pick up the second board and carry it around to the front and lay it down ahead of the other board. They will need to continue moving the back board forward to make their way across the room/yard.
- Warrior Balancing Practice – Place a wooden plank several inches off the ground and have the guests walk across it one at a time. Then have everyone do it again while using their light saber to keep a balloon up in the air.
- Storm Trooper Challenge – Print a picture of a group of storm troopers off the internet and tape it to a wall. One at a time, give each guest four Nerf darts and use a Nerf gun to hit the storm troopers.
More Star Wars Party Games:
- Asteroid Field – Divide the guests into two teams and line them up on opposite sides of the room. Provide each side with lots of whiffle balls (or plastic easter eggs) and set the timer for three minutes. See which team can throw more asteroids onto the other team’s side before the timer rings. Picking up thrown balls and throwing them back is allowed!
- Death Star Doom – Use a black ball or crumple up paper bags into a round shape and paint it black. Play just like Hot Potato but pass the Death Star instead. Have all the guests sit in a circle and pass the Death Star while Star Wars music is played. When the music stops, whoever is holding the Death Star is out of the game. Keep playing until only one person remains.
- Clone Wars – Before the party, write either Clone or Droid on an equal number of plastic eggs and hide them in the yard. At the party, divide the guests into two teams, the Clones and Droids. Send them out to find all their team’s eggs and whichever team finishes first is the winner.
- Pin the Saber on Yoda – Use a poster of Yoda or draw one on poster board. Cut out lots of green light sabers and put double sided tape on each. See who can pin the saber in the right spot while blindfolded.
- Star Wars Coloring Pages – Check out this list of free Star Wars coloring pages. Just print out enough copies for your guests, and provide crayons and markers.
- Light Saber Duels – Use long skinny balloons as the light sabers and have the guests in pairs to duel until someone drops their saber or it breaks.
- A matching Darth Vader piñata is always a hit with the kids!
- Arrange for one of your adult friends to come at the end of the party dressed in a Darth Vader costume for a surprise visit. The kids will love it! Let each of the little Jedis fight Darth Vader until Vader is conquered and falls to the floor.
- Chewbacca’s Chicken nuggets
- Han Solo hot dogs
- Obi-Wan fruit kabobs made with a grape, a strawberry and a marshmallow on a sword shaped pick.
- Skywalker chip and dip
- Luke’s Light Saber – carrot sticks and ranch dressing dip.
- Wookiee Cookies – any favorite cookie
- Yoda Soda – Mix lime sherbet with Sprite soda and serve with a straw.
- Death Star Popcorn Balls
- Chocolate Light Sabers: Pretzel rods dipped in melted red or blue candy melts (found at the craft store in the candy making aisle) with a small piece of foil on one end as the handle.
- Light Saber Star Wars Cake – Bake a 9”x13” cake and cut lengthwise into three long strips. Lay the cake pieces end to end to make one long cake. Frost the bottom portion with chocolate icing as the handle of the light saber and add red M&M’s for the control buttons. Cover the rest of the cake in blue or green frosting (light saber colors!).
- Star Wars Death Star Cake – Bake the cake in a glass mixing bowl (you’ll need two) or a sports ball cake pan. When the cake is cool, put the two cake halves together to create a ball and use thin wooden skewers to hold the top half in place on the bottom half (unless you used a round cake pan, of course). Slice off a thin piece from the bottom so that the cake will stand on the plate. Cover with chocolate frosting. Use mini chocolate candy bars as the docking bays and other openings on the Death Star.
