Star Wars Birthday

For my sons 5th Birthday he wanted a STARWARS themed party. So I quickly got to work before he changed his mind. I bought the Starwars plates, cups and napkins.
These are the goodie bags all the kids went home with. Inside each had 2 light sabers (small glow sticks from Target) gumballs, Starwars fruitsnacks and stickers. Each had a saying "may the force be with you" and their name "Jedi Jake"
Sorry this is a really bad picture but you'll get the idea. My boys were determined to put their Star Wars Legos on the table for decoration so here they are. Each kids got a bubble stick light saber too.
         We had pizza to eat. Here are some JABBA JIGGLERS made from green and blue jello.
                            I just used stickers from Walmart to make the cup cake toppers... easy peasy!!
Vanilla and chocolate OREOS for the WOOKIE COOKIES!!
 Each kid got their own light saber from a pool noodle. Cheap and safe and easy to make just cover the bottom 6 inches with silver duct tape, the kids decorated theirs with stickers. and then we had some fights as you can see below the one that fell off the beam was out and the other went to the final round until only the greatest Jedi was left.
Each kids was able to make their own YODA necklace. I made these up so don't laugh. The kids loved them! I just drew up a pattern and then went to the dollar store and got sheets of these foam sheets and cut and hot glued my yodas together added some googley eyes and tada Yoda necklaces..
      The kids loved making their necklaces, I had to finally tell them we had to move on to other stuff.
                                                     (I got the beads at Joanns for $1 a pack)
Here is the birthday boy himself with his new Chewbacca toy..
                                              Happy Birthday to my sweet little 5 year old!
                    (his party was in June but I am just now feeling good enough to do some posts)
                                                                               and....
                                                       "May the force be with you!"
