Whether you want to throw a “May the 4th” be with you party or a Star Wars Themed birthday party, you’ve come to the right place.

Star Wars Birthday Party Activities

Give the kids a storyline that they need to train to become Jedi Masters to defeat the dark side and take down Darth Vader. This will include:

  • Jedi Robes
  • Light saber training
  • Fighting the Storm Troopers
  • Intergalactic Photo Booth
  • Build a Fighter Ship
  • Darth Vader Piñata
  • Astroid Game
  • Darth Vader Battle

Star Wars DIY Jedi Robes

Dress them in some DIY Jedi robes. As a helpful hint to save some money, buy a thrift store bed sheet or you could buy some inexpensive muslin fabric from Amazon to make these Jedi robes.

  1. Get tan and brown fabric. 
  2. Cut the fabric into a large rectangular piece like a poncho. You may need to measure the kids before pre-cutting them all out.
  3. Cut an additional piece of fabric into a long strip to use as the belt.
  4. Fold the larger piece of fabric in half and cut a half circle in the crease to make a neck hole.
  5. Place the larger piece of fabric over the child’s head then tie the long thin strip of fabric around the waist as a belt. That’s it!

Light Saber Training

First up, light saber training by making pool noodles into light sabers.

Take a pool noodle and cut it in half. Next, use silver duct tape as a base and electrical tape for the buttons on the handle of the light saber.

Fighting the Storm Troopers

Create an obstacle course using hula hoops to fight the storm troopers. Jump through each galaxy (hula hoop) and through the milky way (kid tent with tunnel and add another tunnel) to enter into the home of the storm troopers (the bounce house with storm trooper white balloons).

Intergalactic Photo Booth

Create the Intergalactic Photo Booth by using a clothing rack stand, a table cloth, and a shear overlay fabric you can purchase from Joann’s.

As a prop, use light sabers and these bubble sayings attached cute paper straws from Bake It Pretty.

  • “May the force be with you”
  • “These are not the droids you are looking for”
  • “Beware of the darkside”
  • “Judge me by size do you?”
  • “Use the Force”
