Although it's not an official holiday (yet) no self-respecting Star Wars fan is going to let May the 4th go by without a nod to the force. Whether you're preparing to go all out with a massive party or planning something small with your nearest and dearest, it's always fun to bring the next generation of Jedis into the festivities. Deciding how to celebrate May the 4th with your family can be done easily by adding kid-friendly activities to the day. All ages will love honoring this day with themed games, treats, and crafts that help make May the 4th extra special.
This day became recognized as Star Wars Day by fans all over the world when one of the best puns of all time formed: "May the fourth be with you." Playing off the movie's famous line, "May the force be with you," Star Wars film fanatics everywhere quickly adopted May 4th as a day to indulge (even more than normal) in all things Empire, Ewok, and lightsaber, as Huff Post explained. But you don't have to be an die hard fan to get in on the fun. Use these 11 ideas for celebrating May the 4th with your family to have a memorable day.
Act Out Your Fave Scenes
With so many movies in the franchise to choose from, everyone in the family will have a scene that they love watching again and again. Allow each person to cue the film to their favorite scene and act it out while it plays on the big screen. Or just choreograph a lightsaber fight to act out in public, as Huff Post suggested.
Donate Old Toys
If you've collected toys, games, or books about Star Wars over the years, it may be time to pass on some of the unused or less sentimental items to some Jedis with less. As the website We Are Movie Geeks suggested, you can donate gently used Star Wars items to an organization that serves kids in need.
Enjoy A Movie Marathon
It just doesn't seem right to lay your head down on May 4 without catching at least a few scenes from from a Star Wars movie. Even if you don't have time to sit and watch one in it's entirety, keep them playing in the background while you're in the house on the May 4 to keep force strong with you.
