Here’s an easy and fun DIY party game for a Star Wars Birthday Party: Pin The Tail On Darth Vader.
I love old school birthday parties. I’m not talking pinterest-level wedding-esque birthday parties but rather the old timey throwback pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey types of birthday parties. I loved this upgrade of an old birthday party game staple for Elise’s Star Wars birthday party.
My friend Sarah made this game for her son’s 6th birthday party and we re-used it for Elise’s Star Wars birthday party — Episode VI: Return Of The Birthday. It’s an easy birthday party game to make in an hour or two and the kids from ages 3-7 loved playing it …even when the Force led their lightsabers a little astray…
Supplies for making an easy and fun Star Wars DIY Birthday Party Game: Pin The Lightsaber On Darth Vader
- Posterboard – white, gray, red
- Card stock paper
- Good paper scissors
- Painter’s tape
- Blindfold (or strip of dark fabric)
How to make an easy and fun Star Wars DIY Birthday Party Game: Pin The Lightsaber On Darth Vader
1. Cut strips of gray and red paper or posterboard; glue onto the white posterboard leaving some spacing between for the white to show through.
2. Take a photo of a Darth Vader Lego character; magnify it and print it out to fit the poster. Cut out and glue onto the posterboard.
3. Take a photo of a Lego Lightsaber; magnify it and print it out to be large enough to fit the character.
4. Optionally, take your print-outs to an office supply store and get them laminated. This step isn’t critical but it will make the game last longer.
5. Tape pieces of painter’s tape to the back of the lightsabers. Blindfold the child, spin them around, and pin!
