In our home, any reason is a good one to celebrate! So now that the boys are into Star Wars, ‘May the Fourth be with you’ was a good reason enough to have our own little Star Wars waffle party.
I found a Star Wars waffle maker back in December at Wal-Mart; and of course I had to buy it 5 months in advance just for May 4th; and as I expected, it was a hit with the boys.
So we whipped up some batter, dressed up in our Star Wars pj’s, and ate whipped cream and delicious maple syrup waffles. All that while watching Star Wars Lego.
We will also have a Star Wars week during Camp Wood this summer, so I didn’t want to go overboard with the activities. I’ll have to keep them entertained all summer long after all, which won’t be an easy task, so I must keep some interesting stuff up my sleeves! Last week we ended up painting terra cotta pots with their favorite Star Wars characters and then planted a plant in it for their room. Let see how long these last… as they are supposed to take care of it! Yeah right.
It’s fun to have some out of the ordinary day in the middle of the week. It changes the routine, and they just love doing stuff during the week that we usually do during the weekend. So find a day, find a theme, and go along for some out the ordinary fun this week!
I’ve also included a little video of Liam, playing the Star Wars Theme song. I’m so happy he’s playing the piano. Let’s hope he continues to love it. We’re so proud of you!
May the Fourth be with you!
