This year, Star Wars Weekends will be held each Friday - Sunday from May 16th through June 15th. If we were going, this is what I'd most look forward to seeing and doing:
- Seeing Disney characters (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, etc.) dressed as Star Wars Characters (Luke, Leia, Darth, etc.).
- Star Wars parades.
- Darth Mall- shopping for Star Wars "stuff."
- Meeting Star Wars Characters.
- Jedi Training.
- Star Wars Dining at Hollywood & Vine.
But since we won't be able to do any of this... this year... we'll have to have our own Star Wars Weekends at home.
- Last, we can make Star Wars Storm Trooper Pops!
This project ended up taking a WEEK to finish! Below are the instructions and TIPS I have if you want to try it yourself! Thankfully, we had fun and they turned out kinda cute! :)
First, make sure you have the right supplies. I had Peeps, edible markers from Wilton and white chocolate chips to melt. First, the Nestle's chips were too thick and just glopped up on the peeps. I had to go to the store the next day to get Candy Wafers. Once we had the peeps covered in chocolate, the Wilton markers wouldn't write on them. I had to order Gourmet Writer's off Amazon which took 5 days to get here. Finally, a week later we could draw on our chocolate covered peeps. I have no idea if they will even be edible at this point!
First, C-man put the sucker sticks in the end of the peeps. Then we melted the chocolate and dipped the peeps in swirling off the extra chocolate. We let them dry on wax paper as the "real" Stormtroopers looked on!
Finally, after ordering the right edible markers,
we I was able to draw the "faces" on the peeps to have Stormtrooper pops!
How would you celebrate Star Wars Weekends at home? I'd love to hear!
