Pin the Lightsaber on Yoda

So I was perusing Pinterest in the month or two before Arthur’s birthday, in the hopes of finding some fun games for the kids to play. His first birthday party and I wanted it to be a fun one!
From the site http://www.doodlecraftblog.com/2012/09/star-wars-birthday-party.html?m=1 I found a ‘Pin the Lightsaber on Yoda’ game idea. The original pinner used a coloring book page, enlarged a bit, for hers, which was pretty cute! I scoured the Internet to find a Yoda picture I liked and printed it to fill the page.
After printing it out, I glued it to some scrapbooking paper for additional sturdiness. As I don’t usually have laminating paper around the house, my husband suggested some ‘redneck laminating’. Translation of that means I used packing tape.
After Yoda was ready, and adhered to the basement door at kid height, I went back to my scrapbooking supplies. I cut out 10 thick ‘lightsabers’, big enough for kid hands, and just used tape on the back of them.

Arthur came the closest, but was very upset that he got Yoda’s eyes.

Chiara was a little off, but had a lot of fun wearing the blindfold and spinning around.
I loved this game, and I also love how many ways you can adapt it for whatever theme your party is. Don’t be afraid to make your own games at home!
Party on people!
