Hi Friends! I have to admit when my son wanted a Star Wars birthday party for his 7th birthday, I was excited! I love Star Wars too and was looking forward to planning a fun party. There are a ton of great Star Wars birthday ideas online and I put together the ones I liked best for an action packed good time. We had 10 seven year old boys over and they were kept busy the whole time! I do not like to spend a lot of money on birthday parties so I made pretty much everything myself! I hope you get some fun inspired for Star Wars birthday ideas!
Star Wars Birthday Ideas
Star Wars Party Invitations:
I copied some clip art I found online and made the invitation on a printing program I have following an outline of some invitations I found online. I uploaded it to Shutterfly and had it printed since I didn’t want to waste all my ink.
Star Wars Birthday Party Decorations:
I put some of our Star Wars toys around the house as decorations. I also bought a few black plastic tablecloths at the dollar store and decorated them with puffy paint and some cut out ships. I hung them above the food table and on a few walls as decorations.
Star Wars Birthday Party Activities:
I made all the boys a jedi robe and they received it as they entered the house. Their first station was a lego table where they just got to build whatever they wanted as we waited for all the other guests to arrive. Of course, I had to dress up as Princess Leia! I made a simple costume with some white fabric I found and puffy painted some white felt for a belt. For every station, I made a little sign telling them what their Jedi Mission was.
Station 2 was a Feel the Force station. We blindfolded all the boys and had them taste different things and try to guess. I also played a few sounds from the movies (like Jaba the Hutt talking or Chewy) and they had to guess by just listening.
Station 3 was a physical training, aka an obstacle course. Luckily I found a Yoda backpack on Craigslist for cheap! Each boy had to wear Yoda on his back while he rolled, walked on stilts (cups), shoot a balloon with a water gun, climb our playground ladder, then slide down the slide. They took turns one and a time going through the course and cheering each other on.
Station 4 was Lightsaber Training by balancing a balloon on a light saber. I made the light sabers with pipe insulation from Lowe’s. I got blue and green duct tape and wrapped it around 2/3s of it for the light part and then used black tape to wrap the handle.
Then of course they had to test their training by battling Darth Vader! My hubby dressed up and came out with the music playing and each young jedi took a turn battling with him. Some of them got a little aggressive! It was great to watch.
Then it was pinata time! I found a tutorial on how to make a death star pinata. Unfortunately I didn’t attach it to well and it fell on the third jedi but they didn’t really care as they dived in for the candy. I had brown paper bags already set up with their names on it to collect their candy.
Star Wars Party Food Ideas
There are a ton of great ideas online for food. I kept it pretty simple. The cake I just ordered from a store. We made “double edge lightsaber hot dogs” out of crescent rolls and long hot dogs, “lightsaber kabobs” with grapes on a skewer, “swamp punch” was a green ice cream punch recipe.
At the end, they all received their Jedi Medal that I made of cut out circle corkboard that I painted with a stencil.
We all had a lot of fun, especially the grown ups!! I love that Star Wars made a comeback and it’s something we can all celebrate and love together! Hopefully my youngest son will ask for a Star Wars party someday:)
