And now for the FUN part right!? Party activity ideas are sometimes harder to come by than cake ideas or clever food names, but the incredibly talented Smita of The Party Wall invited some intergalactic friends to bring this party to life! 

Her son’s Legos & Lightsabers “Sith” Birthday, has literally so many ideas that the activities alone deserve it’s very own post! So if you’re having a Star Wars Party (or just love anything Star Wars like I do!) keeping reading for 8 Creative Star Wars Party Games and Activities.

8 Party Games and ActivitY Ideas:

When each guest arrived, they received a “Jedi Mission” card that explained their mission to them. For each completed mission, they got a gold star to stick on their card. They completed the following Jedi missions:

1. Escape from the Death Star: this mission involved navigating through an obstacle course inspired by Star Wars, Episode IV. Some of the obstacles included navigating through Storm Trooper laser fire (red string tied between trees), wading through a trash pit (a ball pit filled with cardboard tubes), shooting down a tie fighter (the tie fighter was made of a paper lantern and rolled up newspapers), bowling down the Storm Troopers, and finally, bombing the Death Star (a corn hole game).

2. Build a Droid: this mission involved crafting an R2D2 droid. I pre-cut all the “droid components” so the children just had to stick them on.

3. Complete Light saber training: the children battled it out at this station, using pool noodle lightsabers and white balloons on which I drew Storm Trooper faces.

4. Design a Lego Starfighter: I packaged an assortment of Lego bricks into Lego-shaped boxes. Each child used the Lego bricks to design their own “star fighter”.

5. Fight in the Jedi Bubblewars: The children got to play with lightsaber-shaped bubble wands and attack the bubbles. The younger children had a blast with this activity.

6. Pose in the Intergalactic Photo booth: photo booth are always so much fun and making it part of the mission was a great way to make sure I got photos of every single guest at the party. The children had fun posing with the Darth Vader standee, lightsabers, various Star Wars masks, DIY Yoda ears, DIY Princess Leia hair buns etc. The backdrop was made using paper plates as the “pegs” on the Lego base plate and a Darth Vader standee.

7. Darth Vader Piñata: the children had fun attacking the Darth Vader piñata with a DIY piñata stick wrapped to look like (you guessed it) a light saber!

8. Hunt for the Darth Vader Candle: this was the final mission of the party. I had all the children gather and told them it was almost time for cake, but that the Darth Vader candle had been stolen. Their mission was to help me find the candle by answering a series of questions that led through a “scavenger hunt” game. I had a group of the parents holding up signs of various Star Wars characters with clues leading them to the next character. The very last clue led them to the location of the stolen candle…and a surprise—Darth Vader himself! Darth then gave each child a DIY Jedi robe and a Jedi Knight certificate and had a lightsaber fighter with the birthday boy.  When he told me I’d made his birthday wish come true to have a lightsaber fight with Darth, I knew it was worth all the effort!

  1. […] A short time ago in a galaxy not so far away, the great Jedi Smita of The Party Wall created this seriously unbelievable Legos & Lightsabers Star Wars Birthday Party for her little Youngling’s “Sith” Birthday! With some bright building blocks, clever treats and a little help from our favorite Droids, Smita used the Force to create this incredible party saga {beautifully captured by Kathie Tam Photography}. You could probably fill the Death Star with all of her fabulous ideas – I mean, we can’t even fit them all in one post. ;) See an entire post on 8 Creative Star Wars Party Games and Activities in Part 2 HERE!
