Our oldest son is a huge Star Wars fan. This past winter he watched all of the Star Wars movies with his dad and could not wait until The Force Awakens came out on Blu-ray. We even incorporated some Star Wars decor into his new outer space bedroom this spring. When he turned six years old a few months, we weren’t surprised at all when he said he wanted a Star Wars themed birthday.
Unlike the puzzle party favors we created for his fifth birthday last year, it was really easy to put together Star Wars birthday treats for our son to take to school this year. With all the Star Wars snacks, stickers, toys and trinkets available these days, there is no shortage of ideas and opportunities we could use to create a fantastic treat his kindergarten friends would love.
In fact, it didn’t take us long to find Star Wars shaped graham crackers, Star Wars fruit snacks, and Star Wars stickers. A quick trip to our grocery store and our favorite dollar store was all we needed. We quickly put these treasures in a outer space blue treat bag tied with metallic ribbon. The only thing left to do was create printable tags that say, “May the Force Be With You” to attach to the Star Wars party favors. We wanted to share it with you today in case you need a super easy idea for a Star Wars birthday treat for your child too!
How to Make Star Wars Party Favors
This birthday treat idea would also work great as party favors if you’re hosting a Star Wars themed party for your child’s birthday. We’re sharing the free printable we created for your personal use only.
What You Need:
- Access to a computer and color printer
- White card stock
- Scissors or a paper trimmer
- A hole punch
- Metallic curling ribbon
- Blue cellophane treat bags
- Star Wars fruit snacks
- Star Wars graham crackers
- Star Wars stickers
- Or any other Star Wars trinkets you can find – like these lightsaber candy suckers, jelly beans, pencils, Pez candy dispensers or party play packs, if you need some ideas!
1. Print the tags for the Star Wars Party Favors.
2. Cut and punch the tags for the Star Wars Party Favors.
Cut the tags apart. I used scissors this time but if you want straighter lines, I’d suggest using a paper trimmer. For Christmas a few years ago, the boys got me the Purple Cows 2 in 1 Guillotine/Rotary Trimmer. It’s so fast and easy!
Next, I used a simple hole punch in the corner so I could easily tie the tags onto the Star Wars Party Favors.
3. Fill the cellophane bags with treats.
Gather the Star Wars fruit snacks, graham crackers, stickers or other trinkets you wish to include in the Star Wars party favors. Put one of each item into a cellophane bag. Then continue to do so with the remaining bags until you have filled enough for your child’s class or birthday party guests.
4. Tie the tags on the Star Wars Party Favors.
Cut the ribbons to the size you need, making sure you have enough for curling or tying (whatever your preference is). Lace the ribbons through the hole in the Star Wars printable tags.
Next tie the ribbons around the top of each cellophane bag. If your child is in kindergarten or lower elementary school, like my son, you may want to tie the knots loosely. Small children don’t have the fine motor skills or patience for tough knots.
Use scissors to curl the ribbons, if desired and you’re done with this quick birthday treat idea!
Now you have a colorful and fun treat to give to your child’s friends at school or as a favor at his or her birthday party. You could also use this free printable for your child’s classmates when Valentine’s Day rolls around again.
