Star wars. Star wars. Star wars. Are your kids over-the-moon excited about the new Star Wars coming out? I love seeing the kids at the store oohing and ahhing when they pass by the isle with the Star Wars stuff…. oh, to be young again!
My 2 year old isn’t quite old enough to get in on all the hype but she still absolutely loved our Star Wars themed day! She played with her light saber from morning till night, literally night — she chose it as her 1 toy she’s allowed to go to bed with. And I’m sure she would have slept in her Jedi outfit, if I would have let her.
If you’re looking for a day of Star Wars fun with your kids (for the holidays, May 4th or just for fun), keep reading! AND don’t miss the awesome giveaway for a $100 Toys“R”Us gift card and Duracell batteries at the bottom of this post!
Ultimate Star Wars Day
1. Dress Up
Be creative and use what you have. We were able to pull together a little Jedi outfit just from what we had in our closets!
Homemade Jedi Outfit:
- Oversized light brown long-sleeve shirt — I grabbed one from my closet for my 2 year old to wear.
- Tan tights
- Brown scarf
Then we topped it off with a Luke Skywalker Ultimate FX Light Saber Toy:
2. Light Sabers
I was so excited to give my little Jedi her first light saber. She was SO excited to open the box and thought it was the coolest thing ever… but it didn’t light up or make any sounds yet… it still needed good ole’ batteries.
There’s nothing worse than giving a kid a toy that requires batteries and having NONE in the house — meltdown, sadness and disappointment. Thankfully Duracell had us covered so we could avoid all of those!
I put Corey in charge of putting in the Duracell batteries.
Once girly realized they lit up, she didn’t want anything to do with the one that was still missing the batteries — she didn’t understand why dad could only “fix” one at a time!
Once they were both ready, we turned off the big lights, turned on the light sabers and had way too much fun! I don’t know who had the most fun, dad or girly!
Light sabers and Durcell batteries can both be picked up at Toys“R”Us — they make the perfect holiday (or just for fun) gift for your Star War’s lovers!
