May the 4th be with You – Star Wars Crafts and Activities

My boys love Star Wars, they have been Star Wars characters for Halloween, and the younger one has had a Star War themed Birthday party.

With today being the annual May the Fourth Be With You day, I thought of sharing some of my favorite May the Fourth activities for kids. There are loads of fun stuff for every age including Origami, Bookmarks, Masks, Obleek, Coloring pages, and more!

But, before that a bit of history.

How did it all start?

The date was chosen for the pun on the catchphrase “May the force be with you” as “May the Fourth be with you”.

As described by author Alan Arnold while he was chronicling the making of  The Empire Strikes Back  for Lucasfilm:

Margaret Thatcher has won the election and become Britain’s first woman prime minister. To celebrate their victory her party took a half page of advertising space in the London Evening News. This message, referring to the day of victory, was ‘May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations,’ further proof of the extent to which Star Wars has influenced us all.”

What started as pun has now become a full-fledged Star Wars semi-holiday, Star Wars Day, a special once-a-year celebration of the galaxy far, far away.

The best thing about May the Fourth is, wherever you are in the world, there’s an opportunity to get involved. And incase, you do not want to step out or need ideas for a Star War themed party, here are a few:
