Star Wars Reads Day Events
Any day in which we get to celebrate Star Wars is a favorite in our household. Some of my children are adults in their own homes, but I still have three left at home and that gives me an excuse to party Star Wars style!

Star Wars Reads Day Events

But I digress. Saturday October 10th, 2015 is the 4th Annual Star Wars Reads Day by Disney and LucasFilm! Not only are there "official" events posted via Star Wars, but check out your local library and bookstores for events, as many of them do participate. Often locals Star Wars "reenactors," such as the 501st Legion will participate in these events, so your child might even get to meet a stormtrooper.

Opinion Poll: Did Padmé Die of a Broken Heart - Intriguing Theory

Did Padmé did of a broken heart? Opinion Poll
Opinion Poll: Did Padmé die of a broken heart or could the truth
be hidden in clues in the movie?
I read the most fascinating article today. It questions whether or not Padmé died of a broken heart and then gives the evidence to it's step by step conclusion.

It was posted in January, but I only recently read it. Joseph Tavano does an awesome job presenting his case. I hope you will take the time to read the article and see if you agree or if you still believe Padmé died of a broken heart.

Let me know where you stand on this issue. I am not 100% convinced, but I think his intriguing theory holds some substantial weight and I am strongly leaning in this new direction. Kudos Joseph!!!

What is a Star Wars celebration without "Star Wars" themed food? Sure, we make Star Wars cakes and cupcakes, but what about the Yoda Soda Floata, Bantha Milk, Pizza the Hutt, Princess Leia Cinnamon Buns, etc?

To start, I will post the Star Wars party food labels I currently have made up in my inventory over the next few days, but if there is a desire for it, I will make some with the Star Wars Rebels theme as well. These are meant to be printed out on cardstock and folded in half, but you decide how you want to use them.

Currently, I try to have a Star Wars themed breakfast on Monday mornings, then dinner or dessert on Monday Nights to eat when we watch Star Wars Rebels together. This has made Mondays very special in our home.

Today's post will be for the cinnamon buns and milk I served one morning for breakfast. This works great for "May the 4th Be With You" day, as well. 

Which Star Wars themed foods do you serve?

Star Wars Rebels: Rebel Strike - Free Online Game

Star Wars Rebels Free Online Game - Rebel Strike
Disney recently released another free online game for young Star Wars fans, called "Rebel Strike." My kids all played it for a bit to give me some input and they were actually impressed with the graphics for a free online game for kids. I think this is quite a compliment since my teenager checked it out too and he spends much of his free time playing SWTOR (Star Wars The Old Republic) game online.

You are required to download some software in order to play it, but at least on Windows 8, this has not caused any compatibility issues with my computer.

I am grateful to Disney for putting out some free enjoyment for those who might not be able to afford a gaming system or a new game, especially in this rough economy. It is one more reason I keep all my printables "free" on this site. No family should be deprived of a Star Wars party, because they cannot afford to buy the "theme" goodies in the store. That is the giving spirit  in true Star Wars fans the world over, to bring free enjoyment to all whether they are in sickness or health, rich or poor.
