So, last year for whatever reason I did not have a birthday party for my youngest and second son. I know, I’m a jerk; this year I blew it out to try and earn some penance. What better place to start then star wars themed party ideas. It was important that this party be a game changer or I was never going to get out of the dog house. This meant a little bit of wonder every where. Now, I’m all about minimal effort, so many items and games were self service. Also, these DIY Lego Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas are on the cheap (Dollar Tree or Amazon.com). I have also included some free printables below :), which include the Ice Cream Bar!
Speaking of which, let’s start there shall we.
DIY Lego Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas: Ice Cream Bar
After much Jedi Training in the bouncy house I opened the Legos Star Wars Birthday Party Ice Cream Bar. I had the kids form a line, and with help I would give the kids the choice between Light (vanilla) or Dark Side (chocolate) Ice Cream (pictured in the back). The child would take their choice to the ice cream distributor and get their bowl. I would get the card back and do it again. This allowed time for each child to get through the ice cream toppings. The free templates are available below!
DIY Lego Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas: Drinks
This cracked me up! Yoda Soda, which is green of course, and Vador-ade (red). I simply printed the labels from the free printable below and taped them on. Its Hawaiian Punch green and red drinks. Then I put dark (black) and light (white) side cups. I borrowed all the items around the table from my neighbor, who purchased them at Hobby Lobby (wall decal). If you know I true Star Wars fan they will have some!
DIY Lego Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas: Cake/Main Table
This cake was compliments of a good friend. I spent the most on the bounce house and the cake. Basically I paid for the cost of making the cake and purchased the Lego candy and table runner from Amazon (and there are a zillion colors). Note: the kids devoured the candy (the yellow are banana flavor). I borrowed the Lego Hans and Vador figures (on top of the cake) and bobble heads from my neighbor too. I bought the plates, silverware, napkins, table cover, paper confetti type strips and candles from the Dollar Tree. Of course the green and red lights are from Christmas.
DIY Lego Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas: Stormtroppers
We popped so many of these, but we had a fun time coloring these in and hanging/taping them throughout the house. The kids only popped one if you can believe that! I bought the bags and balloons from Amazon. You can probably find them cheaper else where; at the time Texas was the second hardest hit city in the US with the cold and I had it. The table cloth and paper fetti from the dollar tree. I ended up cutting the table cloth for this table and the Lego table (next).

DIY Lego Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas: Lego Table
When you are out numbered (e.g., 23 kids to myself and my husband), you start to get creative with ways to entertain the kids without hosting the game, etc. Here is a great idea that involves little inout from you and lots of unlimited creative fun for the kids. Of course, you can see why we had a Lego Star Wars Birthday Party because, we have lots of Legos! Place some Legos at the center of the table and it is a free for all! The kids will have lots of fun creating, which leaves time for you to entertain guest, get the ice cream bar ready to go and so on.
DIY Lego Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas: Jedi Training
Part two of dealing with being outnumbered: get a bounce house! The light sabers were purchased at the Dollar Tree as well. Listen, having a party at home ALWAYS runs more then taking it offsite. Place some pool noodles or blowup light sabers and place them by the Jedi Training entrance and let ’em ride. The white backing is poster board from the Dollar Tree, as well as the black lettering. They had large pieces of black 2 for $1.00. Got the streamers there too!
Here is where some freedom took place. Yes, there was some tattling; it was great fun!
