May The Fourth Be With You

You can't live in my house and NOT like everything Star Wars. Now, I admit to not being as deeply committed and knowledgeable about every character, planet, or vehicles. My oldest son is what I'd consider an aficionado and my husband knows a ton as well. I'm pretty sure they both think that May 4th should be an official national holiday. That being said, check out these post that celebrate all things Star Wars...You're welcome.

This room may have been done for a 6 yr old, but I can guarantee you that my almost 18 yr old would live quite happily in it! One Happy Housewife changed up her son's room into a Star Wars Themed Bedroom, and you will be over the moon to do the same to your kiddo's room! We may have to implement a few of these ideas into my son's room.


Now, you can't celebrate May 4th without some treats, right? Grab a big old box of candy bars and use these fabulous wrappers to put them in! Fancy Shanty created this Free Star Wars Party Printables for you. Not only that, but there are some other great Star Wars themed ideas on her site as well!


Do you remember at the beginning of Rogue One, Jyn received a crystal necklace from her mom? Check out how you can make a DIY Crystal Necklace Worn By Jyn Erso! Pretty cool tutorial from Jennifer Maker. She makes it look so easy. Any Star Wars fan will love it!


Time to head to the sweeter side of the Dark Side! How about you whip up this Star Wars Hot Chocolate! Nothing wrong with having a foamy mustache after having a sip. This drink by Thrifty Jinky was inspired by The Force Awakens. Hot chocolate is delicious any time of the year, but it will be especially delicious on May 4!


Let's continue on in the same vein of delicious goodies with Galaxy Brownies. Now there are some jacked up brownies that my entire family would sink their teeth into! This is the right kind of dessert to celebrate Star Wars. Thank you, The Monday Box, for baking up such yummy colorfulness! You know you wanna take a bite.


Do you have a budding artist in your family who also loves Star Wars? Print a Colouring Page from eParenting and let them go to town. Of course when you visit the site you'll be able to get the black and white version. ;)


Have fun with these three ideas from Saving Dollars & Sense! The first is an Activity Pack from The Force Awakens. The second is a super cool looking Storm Trooper White Chocolate Cocoa. You're going to have to make one for each person in your family. Then, if you don't get enough of THAT cocoa, you can always try the Bantha Cocoa. That is one colorful drink!




Last but not least, finish your day by snacking on a cupcake. I have a feeling in my house the light sabers would become toys for my boys to play with, but why not, right? lol My family loves all things cupcakes so they wouldn't last long around here. Thanks for the fun Star Wars Cupcakes recipe  Highlights Along the Way!


Now that you have amazing ideas, how are you planning on celebrating the day?
