Star Wars Crafts and Recipes for Star Wars Day

These fun movie-themed crafts will help you enjoy the day.

Star Wars is, arguably, one of the most beloved movie franchises of all time. It’s so popular that it has its own holiday on May the Fourth — a pun on the Jedi’s catchphrase “May the Force be with You.”

This year, celebrate Star Wars Day and the movies that you love with your kids by making blue milk, rescuing Han from carbonite, creating your own Stormtrooper treat and more.

Here, we’ve rounded up five activities — from recipes to crafts to science experiments — for you and your family to try on May 4, 2021, or any time you feel like breaking out your favorite episode with the kids.
