It’s Force Friday – Free Lightsaber day!

My grandsons are huge Star Wars Fans and I was over-the-moon excited when I saw that Costume Express was offering a free lightsaber with any purchase – TODAY only!  They love playing dress-up and I do believe that one of them has dressed as a Star Wars character on Halloween for the last three or four years.

Unfortunately, this offer has now expired! But don’t be sad. We can still celebrate the force.

Force Friday Party Ideas

I like to think that the force is always with us. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what you need for a Star Wars Party.

Start with this 16-piece Star Wars Party Pack. That was easy!

May The Force Be With You Star Wars Party

Easy Star Wars Party Food Ideas

You must have Star Wars related food for your party. What about some “space candy” aka rock candy?

If you don’t like to bake, buy some premade cupcakes and top them with this lightsaber cupcake picks.  Or make one of my delicious cupcake recipes.

You can also make Wookie Cookies and delicious Yoda Punch.

DIY Lightsabers

If you don’t want to splurge on lightsabers, make your own with pool noodles and duct tape.

  • Cut pool noodles in half.
  • Cover the end of the noodle (about a quarter of the noodle) with silver duct tape.
  • Use black electrical tape to add a design and to make them look like the real deal.

This could actually be the craft portion of your party. Let each child make his or her lightsaber and take it home after the party.

From balloons to take home favors and everything in between, you can decorate as much or as little as you want.

Looks cool! I guess everyone’s gearing up for Halloween ( at least I am in Halloween mode already ), which by the way, is one of my favorite times of the year because it’s one of those times when we all get creative. Plus adults get to dress up as well.

I think any kid would love to dress as Darth Vader. That free light-saber is definitely a good deal. Love it!

I think that is awesome of Costume Express to do this. I mean, what is Darth Vador without his lightsaber? Awesome deal!

this is awesome! funny story… we went trick or treating with an old co-worker. his 2 year old son grabbed this guys light saber, broke it, then gave it back as if he didn’t just break it. it was quite funny to see lol

We LOVE Star Wars as I was Princess Leia last Halloween & our wedding reception was Star Wars themed (cake topper, light sabers, & theme music!)

Jeanette September 4, 2015 - 9:26 am

We are big Star Wars fans in this house. Too bad we bought our costume already or we would be all over this!

Oh I will check this out because my son has been wanting one for this year’s Halloween. Great saver right there.

We’re all Star Wars fans here. My kids love the old school movies and the cartoons.

So cool!!! In my family, I am the big Star Wars fan… I am excited about the up coming movie and will try to convince my son or hubby to dress up as the mighty Darth Vader. The light saber will surely persuade my little man, but not too sure about hubby (LOL). Thanks!

What a fun promotion! My husband loves Star Was, I think he would have a blast with a light saber even though he’s older.

My husband is a big fan of Star Wars but he doesn’t collect any star wars toys or games. I can’t wait to watch the upcoming movie…

Katarina September 5, 2015 - 3:56 am

Oh, I’m not a big Star Wars fan, but so many people are it’s crazy 🙂 Then again, it there was something like this for Harry Potter costumes, I would buy them all!

Mykidsguide September 5, 2015 - 6:30 am

My family is a huge Star Wars fan! My son would love the costume and the free lightsaber.

Cherri Megasko September 5, 2015 - 11:50 am

Oh man! I missed it! A day late and a dollar short – story of my life. LOL

Bonnie G September 6, 2015 - 10:48 am

Oh shoot! I missed this deal. I bet my little boy would have loved a light saber. What a great deal!

My Sister dresses her dog as Yoda every Halloween. We are huge Star Wars fans. It will be fun this year seeing all the Kids dressed up in their costumes.

Lynndee September 6, 2015 - 12:23 pm

My husband is a big Star Wars fan. He had never worn a Star Wars costume on Halloween yet thought. This year might be the best time. 🙂

HilLesha September 6, 2015 - 4:54 pm

That is pretty neat. My son would love something like this. Thank you for sharing!
