Geek Fun

Level Up Your “May the 4th Be With You” Day

In this go, go world, it is fun every once in awhile to celebrate special moments like birthdays and graduations. Sometimes there are even opportunities to celebrate something you are passionate about.

Over the years, May 4th has become “May the Fourth Be With You” Day and May 5th has become “Revenge of the Fifth”. I call these two days the perfect time to let your geek flag fly and embrace your passion for all things Star Wars.

When planning your May 4th day, searching the Internet may be a bit overwhelming. The web is full of mind-blowing ideas. So many recipes, pictures, and activities that one almost doesn’t know where to begin.

Red 5 Mom, The Star Wars Mom, and May the Fourth Be With You Party Blog are creative Star Wars blogs that are great places to start when planning a galactic celebration. They always have tasty food ideas and interesting crafts. On the other hand, Pinterest and Google are a double-edge sword. They can be helpful while at the same time being mind-boggling. Sometimes there can be such a thing as too much of good thing.

Below I’ve compiled some of my favorite Star Wars ideas from the web and separated them into three levels. Level 1 consists of ideas that are quick and simple. Level 2 ideas require a little more planning and prep. Level 3 ideas are for an all out celebration of the Star Wars.

Level 1 – Padawan

Craft

Simple, quick, fun craft to do with kids.
