As Game Master for our May the Fourth be with You Parties, I set up and come up with games for us to play. Here are two games from last year’s festivities that are perfect for any Star Wars Party: “Star Wars Limbo” is a variation of the standard limbo game for kids and adults, and the “Star Wars Limb-OH!” is my own invention, and meant for pretty serious fans only.
Today, we are doing a simpler version of the Lightsaber Hilt Napkin Rings. This easier version requires less time, less mess, and less sharp tools… but is just as much fun to make…maybe even more so. ‘Cuz who doesn’t enjoy doing crafts with paper towel rolls and Duct tape 🙂
I have mentioned before that my mom (“M4P Mom”), regularly calls with ideas for the blog. Unfortunately, she has more ideas than we have time. What we really need are some Minions to keep up. (Where are Bob, Kevin, and Stewart when we need them?)
So we have to prioritize – and doing these Lightsaber Hilt Napkin Rings were a no-brainer. I think this is one of the coolest things we have done in a long time, here at May the Fourth Central.
The big question on everybody’s mind when The Force Awakens movie posters came out was: Where is Luke? Well, we now know there was a reason he was missing from the posters (BTW, brilliant marketing guys!), and just like the movie, we have been saving Luke for the very, very end. Today is the last of our The Force Awakens pixel pattern series.
One would think that stuffed monkeys do not NEED Star Wars costumes. And one would be wrong. I know that M4P friend Amy (maker-of-all-art-things extraordinaire) would certainly object to that statement, so Amy, this one is for you!
This brilliant creation by Mara Saxer at the blog Mara’s Things has everything a curious monkey could want: ear protection (to protect its ears if it makes too much noise), icky gooey tauntaun innards, and goggles to protect oneself while playing with said innards…and style. Monkeys have style!
So young. So innocent. That’s what I thought anyway until I watched Robot Chicken. There are a handful of scenes in the Star Wars movies that will just never be the same again. Luke at Uncle Owen’s breakfast table is one of them. Who would have thunk that the Tosche station was not, erhm, really a store?
