The kids had so much fun playing with them that we ended up making a few lightsabers with different colored straw.

So, what is Star Wars Day

May the Fourth is a day to celebrate all things Star Wars. The expression “May the force be with you” is widely spoken and repeated by characters in the Star Wars series as a means of wishing the other person a safe mission and good fortune against the dark side. The force is strong and supports those characters who make good use of it.

So because of a pun, Star Wars Day was made, and that’s all there is to it. “May the force be with you.” May the Fourth (be with you).

So, hurry and grab the supplies to make your own mini version of lightsabers.
