A short time ago in a galaxy far, far away…..we hosted the ultimate kids Star Wars Party! Want to know how to host your own #DisneyKids playdate or party? It’s pretty easy and a whole lot of fun! Your young Jedi’s will love these kids Star Wars Party ideas. Read on for details!
I partnered with Disney Parks for this paid program. All opinions are my own.
How to host the ultimate kids Star Wars party
The Force is with you. Don’t feel overwhelmed when planning your Star Wars party. These simple ideas will help you pull off the coolest party, ever! Grab a Padawan Power Bar, and get to work.
What you’ll need for the Star Wars party decorations:
- Yellow poster board
- Black and white balloons
- Black cardstock paper
- Black pipe cleaners
- Black Space Blast plastic table cover
- White plastic table cover
- Black permanent marker
- Tape and Scissors
Star Wars Backdrop
To make the awesome Star Wars backdrop, use the yellow poster board to trace “Star Wars” lettering, cut out and color in the letters with black permanent marker. Once dry, attach the lettering with scotch tape to the Space Blast plastic table cover.
DIY Star Wars Balloon Tie Fighters
To make the DIY Balloon Tie Fighters, you’ll need 4 black pipe cleaners, 1 black balloon, 2 pieces of black card stock and tape. I found simple instructions for the DIY craft here.
To make the Stormtrooper balloons, you’ll need white balloons and black permanent marker. My friend’s husband works for Disney and has an eye for art, so he drew the faces by hand. Yes, freehand people! You can attempt this too, or try this stencil possibly to help out. I recommend completing these three party decorations a day or two before the party.
Star Wars Party Food
What you’ll need:
- Hot dogs (Hutt Dogs)
- Hamburgers (Han Burgers)
- Tomato, sliced
- Mashed potatoes recipe (Vader Taters)
- Green grapes, strawberries and blueberries + wooden skewers (Obi-Wan Kabob-I’s)
- Cinnamon Teddy Grahams (Edible Ewoks)
- 7 layer dip recipe (7 Leia Dip)
- Bottle water (R2D2 H2O)
- Juice (Jedi Juice)
Even more Kids Star Wars Party Ideas!
Using edible food coloring markers, draw Stormtrooper faces on marshmallows to pull off these showstopper cupcakes! They will be the talk of the party! I used toothpicks to hold them in place.
Star Wars Party Games
A lightsaber battle is a must for the young Jedi’s! We also watched the latest Star Wars movie; Rogue One while everyone enjoyed their themed party food. End the event with a Hidden Mickey Hunt game. It’s a favorite at the Walt Disney parks, and really easy to do at home too. Simply find printable mickey mouse heads, cut out and hide around the party space. Give the kids pencil and paper and tell them how many hidden Mickey’s they need to locate. The child that finds all the hidden Mickey’s first wins a prize! We gave away a Disney Pillow Pet.
Star Wars Party Favors
Find bubble wands at your local dollar store, then print out these FREE Star Wars Thank You Printables. Using string, attach the thank you notes to the
bubble wands lightsabers. Other easy party favors include Star Wars coloring books, stickers, and gummy snacks.
