Star Wars Inspired Party Favors
Star Wars inspired party favors were a must when we had Mr. B’s 6th birthday party. With the release of the new movie, Star Wars is everywhere now. You can see the whole re-cap of our Star Wars Inspired party , including the birthday party review HERE, plus all the food HERE.
Today, I wanted to share the 2 different Star Wars Inspired Party Favors I made up for the party, plus share a little of our Star Wars Party fashion. This is the last party post…I promise!
Since we have a Pinata every year at my son’s party, I wanted to make something for the kids to collect their candy. The first year, I completely forgot bags, and the second I just used store-bought party favor bags.
This year, all the Star Wars themed birthday stuff either had the Star Wars Rebels on it, or was super expensive from past years on Amazon. So, I decided to make my own.
This post contains my Amazon Affiliate links. If you click through the link or picture, you will be taken directly to the product. There is no additional cost to you, and I may make a small commission if you make a purchase.
I bought 2 packages of plain white paper bags (which you can find on Amazon Creative Hobbies® 24 White Small Paper Gift Handle or the picture below.) I then
used some black foam sticky paper from Michaels, and a Sharpie Marker. I then looked at a million pictures of Storm Troopers, and just did the face freehand. All 20 of them look different, and that’s OK. The kids didn’t care. They just wanted a place to put their candy.
In addition to the candy bags, I like to give everyone a “Swag” bag. I found some really cute Star Wars reusable totes from Target at the Dollar Spot, and found some cute Star Wars themed stuff to go inside.
I only gave one bag per family because I didn’t want to go crazy with the cost. The kids didn’t really care about the actual bags…just what was inside. I figured the parents would use the bags somehow (or the husbands could keep them…mine wanted one.) I made sure there was enough stuff for each kid, plus if they had a sibling at home.
Inside the bag, each child got a pack of Star Wars fruit snacks, Star Wars graham crackers, and a Star Wars Bracelet (they came in packs of 4, which I got on clearance, also at Target. You can buy them through my Amazon link by clicking here:American Greetings Star Wars Rebels Party Supplies Rubber Bracelets (4 Count) )
I then included either a notebook and light saber pen OR a pencil-case and light saber pen. I couldn’t find enough of all the same things on clearance, but I made sure each family’s bag had the same things in it. Then, I waited to hand the bags out as they were leaving, so the kids would be comparing and/or complaining…as I know mine would.
Finally, I put each of the kid’s initials on the tags both to personalize, and so I would remember who’s bag was who’s. I used some red sticky foam paper and scrapbook letters.
Also, instead of party hats, we used these Star Wars Masks. Feel free to click on any of my affiliate links below to purchase, as no additional cost, to fill your bags.
Finally, what party post would be complete without a look at our Star Wars Fashion?!?! I always like to dress the kids in apparel that go with the theme, so this year was no different. I waited and waited and, of course, got everything on clearance.
The twins’ sweatshirts and pants were from Old Navy. The jeans even had star wars fabric when you rolled up the cuffs on the bottom. So cute! Their T-shirts were made by Adidas, and I got them at the Adidas outlet…which is also where my T-shirt was from. I had a sweatshirt too, but it was actually too hot to wear it.
The awesome Storm Trooper mask is what we used instead of birthday hats. Again, clearance from Target.
Now, unfortunately, these items are no longer available in stores, but you can get them on Amazon. They are a lot more expensive than when I purchased them, but I wanted to include my affiliate links just in case you had to have one. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed all of our Star Wars Inspired Party Favors. If you have any questions about making the bags or about any items shown, feel free to leave me a comment. With the new Star Wars out on DVD, will you be having your own party? Can I help decorate?
