Star Wars has taken the world by storm, permeating multiple generations and providing entertainment and fandom for many people. The effect of Star Wars has been so grand that they’ve even set aside a day to celebrate it! Derived from the notable phrase “may the force be with you,” May the 4th is the perfect day for Star Wars Day. In this week’s Virginia Square Towers Blog, we’ve got a few suggestions on how you can celebrate this upcoming May 4th in true Star Wars Fashion.

Movie Marathon

There are many movies in the Star Wars film world, which makes it easy to have a long marathon. Whether you choose to watch all of the movies in chronological order or to pick your favorites and enjoy their content, you’ll have hours of entertainment. To make your marathon even better, we suggest ordering some pizza and getting some snacks and drinks!

Star Wars Treats

There are plenty of ways to celebrate Star Wars Day, but one of our favorite ways is by making some treats! Use your creativity and experiment with some different treats; you can try making some pretzel lightsabers, character macarons, and even carbonite jello! This is a good way to spend some time with friends and your children and also to enjoy some delicious treats!

Crafts

If you have children who enjoy the Star Wars Saga, it can be fun to encourage their creativity and help them explore the fandom! We suggest getting crafty by making some of these crafts:

  • Foam lightsabers
  • Yoda or Leia headbands
  • R2-D2 trash cans
  • Chewbacca or Ewok plush dolls
