I need help and thought maybe some of you could lend ideas.
I'm planning a Lego Star Wars party for Joel. It's this Sunday. I've found some fun ideas online.
What I want to do is have the boys make their own lightsaber upon arrival. (My thinking: Taking the time to make weapons minimizes the time spent actually using them. This is a sanity move on my part.) For these I need cardboard mailing tubes and construction paper.
Qu. 1: Anyone know where I can get the tubes really cheap (or free?) and soon?
Qu. 2: Anyone have a huge piece of black fabric I could drape over Paul's head and body to make him Darth Vader? At the end of the party I want him to say to Joel, 'I am your FAAATHER" and have the kids pose with him and Joel. The pictures would go out in thank-you cards (in my ideal world).
Qu: Anyone have the Star Wars theme on CD?
Qu: Anyone want to decorate pretzel rods w/ green icing for me? (edible lightsabers)
Qu: Anyone want to bake two 13x9 cakes, one chocolate, one vanilla? I'm going to freeze them, then cut each into 3 strips to make a really long lightsaber cake (again, an online creative find, not my brain at work).
Qu: Anyone know where I can get (preferably big) silver sticker stars real cheap? I'm gonna stick them onto dollar store black plastic tablecloths and hang around the room, galaxy-like.
Qu: Has anyone regretted giving their son a real , battery-operated, noise-making lightsaber as a gift?
Qu: Anyone know who carried Star Wars folders real cheap ? (My theme is "cheap" if you haven't noticed). I want to photocopy coloring sheets of various SW characters and enclose them in the folder with a goody bag of candy.
Qu: Anyone want to decorate said cake above?
Qu: Anyone volunteer to clean my house , before and afterwards?
Qu: Any other cool ideas floating around in your creative head?
