Star Wars will probably be fondly remembered for many years to come.
Even though the movie came out back in 1977, I have a feeling that it will carry throughout history for a long time.
Now that you know my feelings about Star Wars it should come as no surprise to you that one of my favorite birthday parties that I’ve held for my son was a Lego Star Wars themed birthday party.
You see growing up I had two loves, one was Lego, and the other was Star Wars.
As a kid I never thought of combining the two, but thanks to some awesome video games and a little bit of age, I’ve now realized how perfect they are for each other.
Naturally my own son grew up with this love as well, so when he turned 10 years old ,we decided to throw the best party ever, and we did it in the best way we knew how.
Making a Lego outfit isn’t too hard, all it requires is some boxes, and some paint to make the outfits. We didn’t give any Lego heads to any of the kids, since that wouldn’t be too safe, but the bodies and legs that we made looked absolutely amazing. I did make a Lego head for myself (obviously for the kids benefit not my own) and designed a Darth Vader helmet on it. I must say it has been one of my favorite costumes that I’ve made.
The night was filled with kids having Lightsaber battles on the tramp, and a few star wars movies playing in the background. The cake was also an amazing feature of the party, we had a specially made cake that looked like the death star. Imagine as a little kid getting the chance to eat a death star! They all loved it, and it tasted just wonderful. The second cake that we provided looked much more like a lego model, it was the X wing but it was made to look as if it had been built with Lego connectors, in order to make it look more like a Lego. We also took a Lego man and put him inside just to make it a bit more fun, but of course we took it out before anyone accidentally ate the man.
Other fun aspects of the party included the various games that we played. All of the kids brought bikes and thought that it would be fun to pod race on their bikes and to pretend like they were Anakin. It looked like they had a lot of fun, and it got them away for a little bit as we prepared everything in the house. We also had a fun basic Star Wars trivia game, but we tried to keep it on a proper level for 10 year olds. We then broke out the Legos and proceeded to make our own Lego star wars collections, we even gave some small Lego sets to kids.
Over all I would say it was one of the best birthday parties that we’ve thrown for our kids. It may have taken some time, but in the end, it was definitely worth it.
