    23 Ways To Throw The Best Star Wars Birthday Party Ever

    Whether you're turning 13 or 30.

    1. Use pool noodles and duct tape to create lightsabers.

    2. Make simple no-sew Jedi robes to get kids into character.

    3. And DIY some Princess Leia buns, too.

    4. Turn a paper lantern into the Death Star with gray spray paint, black tape, and a few pieces of cardboard.

    5. You can even make a Death Star piñata.

    6. Wrap free printables around utensils to make napkin lightsabers.

    7. Use permanent markers or colored duct tape to turn a dollar store trash can into R2-D2.

    8. This idea also works on a drink dispenser.

    9. Use a piece of plywood, some black paint, and star stickers for a photo backdrop.

    10. And amp up the fun with some puntastic printable signs.

    11. You can also make and print out signs of your own.

    12. Tape free printables onto a dollar store bowling set for a Stormtrooper face-off.

    13. Or use a cardboard box, some paint, and a few beanbags to make your own Death Star corn hole game.

    14. If your party is indoors, tape low-hanging Stormtrooper balloons from the ceiling.

    15. Or, if you're looking for a no-contact game, have kids try to toss beanbags into each other's hula hoop "force fields."

    16. And you can't forget this twist on a classic: pin the bun on the Leia.

    17. Another idea: Freeze a Han Solo figurine in a tub of ice and let kids use dollar store water guns to free him from "carbonite."

    18. Or kids can just eat their way to him in this Jell-O mold version.

    19. For snacking, make easy lightsaber kabobs.

    20. Or use mini marshmallows, Oreo wafer cookies, and a little icing to make edible TIE fighters.

    21. Save money on a Star Wars cake by putting Stormtrooper marshmallows on top of cupcakes.

    22. You can also turn colorful cupcakes into one long lightsaber.

    23. Or just make a big, beautiful garbage compactor and call it a day.

    Happy planning!
