Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Teal loop. Today we are sharing fun ideas for a Star Wars themed movie night.
Last Saturday night, my wife, daughter, her boyfriend, and I sat down to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens via our iTunes library and our Apple TV. For Sophie and Joseph, this movie was the first movie they ever saw together when we saw it a little over a year ago in the theater. For me, this was the first Star Wars movie that I actually saw in the theater (unless you count the animated Clone Wars movie some years back). For all of us, it really was just a good opportunity to sit down, enjoy a good movie, and eat some snacks.
I had it all planned out. We had talked beforehand, and Sophie thought Light Saber Lollipops sounds really cool! I was thinking rock candy made into the shape of light sabers would be a neat way to make them at home. Then, I found out that it takes about 5 days to make rock candy. There went that idea. So then I went onto Pinterest and found some really creative snacks that really were just a play on words. Snacks like these (which you can check out in great detail at this Pinterest page):
- 7 Leia Dip
- Wookie Cookies
- Jar Jar Links in a Blanket
- Obi-Wan Kabob-ies
- and many more!
To be honest, though, I’m just not as creative as my friends Lynn and Camille are, and not having any young children at the house (and not celebrating a birthday for that matter), the whole creative snack foods ideas kind of went the way of Han Solo at the hands of Kylo Ren…which you can see further down in this Lego mock up.
I’m hoping that my post isn’t as bad as this crashed Star Destroyer…of course, I leave that up to all of you!
Still, I really do like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and I’m glad that I’ve added it to our library. While my post may not feature quite the crafty creative spin that my friends at Always Moving Mommy and Sparks of Magic likely will, I hope you have enjoyed my post. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, well, I’m sorry for the spoiler. If you have, perhaps you will think about watching it again in the comfort of your own home. If you do come up with some of these creative snacks, drop me a line or a comment and let me know how they turned out!

Haha! You are too funny and kind, Mike! Oh my gosh, I have never seen the Lego version of Hans vs Kylo… :( Oh my. I can now say that Legos made me cry. LOL.
Thanks, Camille! I guess you’ve never stepped on a Lego before — that definitely brings a tear to my eye when it happens! :)
You could have just used popsicles for lightsabers and claimed you spent 5 days making them! Missed opportunity, padawan!
Dang Lee, I never even thought of that! I definitely am a padawan in that regard! Looks like “Crafting with Cool Nouns” is the next website we need to design for you! :)
Sounds like an awesome night spent with your family! Pinterest is a great place to find ideas when you want to have a creative, crafty night. I love your rock candy light saber idea so hopefully you’ll try it and share how it goes :)
Maybe Lynn, I’m not going to commit to that just yet. :) Thanks for the comment!
