More Fun Star Wars Ideas

If you are Star Wars fans then you probably know just how much your kids love to talk about Star Wars! You can easily create lots of fun projects that all focus on Star Wars. 

One thing you can do is create a Star Wars Trivia night! Create some easy questions for the younger kids and progressively make them harder and harder for the older kids. 

Grab some fun lightsabers and have an epic Star Wars battle as you reenact one from the movie. 

Have a movie marathon! Grab some fun Star Wars themed snacks and watch all the movies during a rainy weekend or watch one every Friday for Friday night movie night.

Grab this Star Wars Sticker book for practice with their fine motor skills as they place the stickers throughout the book. This is the perfect book to take when you need your child to be a little more quiet and sit still. 

Lastly, don’t forget to spread the love of Star Wars into your reading time together. We love these Star Wars Little Golden Books for younger kids. If your kids are a bit older learning to read on their own, then these level 1 Star Wars readers are perfect! They will certainly want to read these over and over again.
