May The Fourth Be With You: Celebrating Star Wars Day With Kids

May the Fourth be with you!
Since the very first Star Wars film was released in 1977, the world has never been the same. With the series becoming one of the most popular franchises, its pop culture phenomenon has been gaining strength over the years. In early 2000’s, a new religion ‘jediism’ was officially recognized. This year, Twitter has debuted special Star Wars emoji.
Many Star Wars fans around the world are waiting for May 4th – recognized as Star Wars day – and we think it’s a great occasion to celebrate and have fun as a family. Here are five suggestions for this Monday:

  • Play dress up. Children love Halloween, but it’s only once a year. Why not have some fun and dress up for Star Wars Day? Luke’s and Princess Leia’s costumes are quite easy to make even with minimal efforts.
  • Watch your favorite Star Wars movie. While you might not be able to do a full-blown Star Wars watching marathon, you can still watch just one movie. Or Star Wars themed Family Guy episodes.
  • Make Star Wars inspired food. Browse Pinterest for food ideas. Some ideas are quite easy to bring to life, such as pretzel stick light sabers or lemonade dispenser styled as R2D2.
  • Play Star Wars. Depending on your age and preferences, you have many choices to play Star Wars: practice your light saber skills, break out that Star Wars board game, build a Lego set, or put together a Star Wars puzzle.
  • Surprise your loved ones with Star War weekend tickets. For one month, Disney World is featuring Star War weekends that are sure to delight any fan.
