The Force Is Strong with these quick and easy Star Wars treats!
Happy Friday and welcome to Day 2 of the 13 Frightfully Fun Days of Halloween! Yesterday I shared my new favorite Halloween dessert, Candy Corn Fruit Dessert Pizza, and today I’m sharing with you my boys favorite treat. If you haven’t noticed by now with all the Star Wars posts I’ve done, my boys are a little obsessed with the movies. They are more a fan of the original three but we are all excited for the seventh film to come out this year!
So when I was asking my boys what kind of treats they wanted to give to their friends for trick or treating of course they
screamed said Star Wars! At first they wanted to give their friends Pool Noodle Light Sabers, but I had to explain that they wouldn’t fit in their pumpkins. They wouldn’t let go of the light saber idea so I decided to make a smaller version of their favorite toys.
These were so easy to make, my boys helped with the tape too and they can’t wait to hand them out to their friends. I used these Clif Kid Organic Fruit Ropes (Amazon sometimes has them for $1.99) because they have no artificial colors. Those darn color numbers (as my boys call them) make my boys crazy. You can definitely use other long snacks, like Fruit by The Foot, too.
Green, Red, White and Black Cardstock or Construction Paper
Measure your Rope (or treat that you are using) that you are going to wrap up. You will want to cut the main light saber piece (either green or red) big enough to cover the entire treat. My treat was 7″ long by 1.5″ wide so I cut my piece 7″ long and 4″ wide.
Roll your treat up with paper and use tape to close.
Next you’ll want to cut your handle for the light saber out of the white cardstock. Mine was 2″ tall and 4″ wide
Roll the handle around the bottom of the light saber and attach with tape.
For the buttons you’ll cut two long black pieces and one small black piece out of the cardstock. My long pieces are .25″ tall and 4″ wide. The small piece is 1.5″ tall and .25″ wide.
Roll the two long black pieces around the top of the white handle. Put the small black piece near the bottom and attach all with tape.
Attach your treat labels (click here to print) to a large black square and punch a whole in the upper left corner.
Using bakers twine (or any string or yarn) attach tag to treat.
Last year when we handed out candy to trick-or-treaters, Rohrl (my then 2 year old) told everyone, as he was dressed up as Darth Varder, “I am your father”. This year we are hoping he says “May The Force Be With You”.
What do you usually hand out for treats for Halloween?
