His other favorites were the Lego Seattle Space Needle and The Empire State Building. These are so neat! He loved them!
Well I managed to pull off a star wars party! Here is the cake. Justin wanted the Death Star. I started searching and found this version of the Death Star. The part sticking out of the side for those of you uneducated in all things star wars is the death ray!
The Star Wars party!
We even managed to find the millennium falcon to "land" on the death star. (it is a key ring, we pulled the key ring part off)
I sprinkled confetti stars all around the cake and made cup cakes out of the remaining cake batter.
another young Jedi knight wielding his light saber!
We played asteroid toss. The asteroids are just black felt cut into squares, hot glued and filled with rice. I also glued small pieces of felt on the fronts.
The Death Star pinata! I had actually started to make a pinata from paper mache. Saturday morning I checked on it and it had split down one side! What to do? I knew I didn't have time to repair it and have it dry in time. I did the next best thing. I went to the party store and bought a soccer pinata brought it home and spray painted it gray. Then I took black sparkly felt and made all the bays and doors on the death star. I also took a piece of gray felt and made the death ray. The kids loved it!
C3P0 made an appearance!
as did Darth Vader
along with a clone trooper!
(the masks came from the star wars website. I bought half masks at Walmart for about 50 cents each and hot glued them to the star wars faces)
some light saber training between my niece and her dad (my brother Mike)
time for cake!
The birthday boy!
He blew them all out!
time for some death star (pinata) destroying! Isn't my dh Larry so brave! Holding that pinata with a bunch of kids and a bat!
Yes he did get hit in the leg with the bat! He was ok...the picture looks bad, but he said it was more from surprise than pain....Surprise??? Whatdya mean? You can't see those kids and that bat? (the bat was foam with a hard center core)
the party goers!
Time for silly faces!
