Star Wars Lego Birthday Party


Both my sons are huge Lego Star Wars fans. For Halloween we made them homemade star wars lego costumes that were so awesome and we decided to keep within the theme of this year and go with Lego Star Wars. This was only a One hour Party (thank goodness). Instead of games and prizes we decided to do something a little different and more memorable... a Jedi Training Course!

While the kids were waiting for the rest of the guest to arrive we had my sons collection of star wars lego pieces out for the kids to stay busy and entertained.  We also had a playlist of Star wars music playing in the background. 

Then when we were ready to get started we told the kids that they this wasn't a birthday party and they all were so bummed out. Then I said "You each have been chosen to become jedi and must be trained in the ways of the force and prove you have what it takes to be a jedi and defeat the dark side!" Then my Husband took the kids into the family room where the furniture was moved out of the way so there was enough room. Then we had the Training lesson, than cake and ice cream, opened presents and let them loose outside with their new light sabers to go at it until their parent came and got them. What is really cool is that the kids were all talking about it at school the next day and I had parent coming up to me all week saying how much their kids keep talking about the party. My son has been going through some issues at school lately and he has been feeling like he doesn't have a lot of friends and so this party couldn't have come at a better time and did wonders for his self esteem. This was a lot of work but it was so worth it and so much fun and I know he is going to remember this for the rest of this life.

I've made it easy for you ;)
And Here Is Everything You Need For Your Own
Lego Star Wars Party
These cards were so fun to make. I loved getting to work with all this fun typography and challenging myself to come up with a modern design while still sticking to a Star Wars Lego theme. You can buy these Personalized Invitations at Designing Pixel Dust in sets of 8 for only $15.00 + S&h. They are fully customizable for no extra charge. 


The Free printables for everything is at the bottom of this post in an easy to use pdf. These drink labels fit the mini Gatorade bottles and the super mini water bottles. 


When you cadets have finished their Jedi training they can then receive their Badge. Just print and cut these out and then whole punch the top. Use ribbon so they can wear it around their necks. 


I tried to look for lego star wars cake tutorials that were easy and I just couldn't find any at my low skill level, and without using yucky fondant. So I had to come up with my own. Here is my truly original cake tutorial... Im so glad it actually worked.

Lego Star Wars Cake
Need:
2 cake mixes of you choice
2 cans of frosting (White)
2-4 round cake pans
Black tube frosting

1. This is a three in a half layered cake. Bake both cakes as directed in the round cake pans. If you only have two cake pans like me you are going to half take turns getting all four baked. 
2. Freeze one of the round cake pans for four hours or over night. This is so you can Carve the circle for the top without the cake falling apart. 
3. Once the top little cake is carved using a knife, go ahead and layer and frost the cake. 
4. Add the designs with black tube frosting and your done. 





These light sabers are really easy to make out of swimming pool noodles, and make a great party favor. You can find them at the dollar store during the warmer months but if you have winter babies like me the best place to find them is Amazon.  Cut the noodle in half and then dress them up with black a silver Duct tape at the handle.




Jedi Training:
To do the Jedi training check out this youtube video of the disney land version (be sure to check out part 2 as well). My husband and brother watched it a few times ant then practiced it once or twice before the party to kind of give them some ideas on what stuff to say. The Jedi Training is really fun and simple. It can get crazy so remember to just have fun with it and make it your own. 





I'd love to see your Star Wars Lego Party. Feel free to send me links and/or pics of your party and I will post them on my next "What you've been up to" post!

  9. My son has been a Star Wars fan since he could walk - he would love a party like this! And the best part is that I think I could actually pull off that cake, as opposed to the really awesome but totally beyond my skill level Star Trek cake that my husband requested for his birthday in February. :D
