May the Fourth Be With You!

Happy Star Wars Day!

By: Julia Prendergast

We’ve put together a list of some crazy Star Wars-themed products you’ve got to get your hands on.


Star Wars-Themed Face Masks

Like these hand-embroidered ones that are available in both kids and adult sizes! This way you’re also supporting a local business.

Disney themselves is launching Star Wars themed face masks, where all of the profits (and another 1 million masks) will be donated to Medshare. These will then be distributed to children and families in underserved and vulnerable communities!

While you’re at it, here’s the CDC’s guide to using a cloth face mask. Remember to keep it secure!


Blue Milk

Blue milk is a staple in the Star Wars universe, and now you can make it from home! All you’ll need is 1-1/2 cups whole milk, 1 tablespoon sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla, and blue food gel dye. First, stir the milk, sugar, and vanilla together, before adding (one drop of) the blue food gel dye once the sugar has dissolved.

Remember to refrigerate it!

Happy May the Third!! OK, OK, I get it doesn't quite have the same ring to it 😂 We're both working tomorrow so decided to spread the Star Wars Day fun out a little and spend the whole day geeking out today! . If there is one thing I've learnt about myself during lockdown it's that I'm a planner. Planning makes me happy and being unable to do that leaves me a little lost. So, ploughing creative energy into silly days like this is making ALL the difference at the moment. Picnics at home, dapper days in the garden – it's all helping me feel a little more like me. . Blue milk hot chocolate, wookie cookies (or as close as we could get without flour 😂), a movie marathon and few games of Sabacc = perfect Sunday. Hope you all have a fab May the Fourth! . . . . . . . #maythefourthbewithyou #maythe4th #starwarsday #starwars #starwarsfood #starwarssnacks #macarons #bluemilk #bobafett #disneyathome #disneyfoodie #cutefood #letseatcute #maytheforcebewithyou

Yoda Pancakes

Why not make some Yoda pancakes! All you’ll need is your typical pancake ingredients, plus some matcha powder (to get that signature green) and cocoa powder.

The recipe calls for one pancake with matcha powder and one with cocoa powder to create the full illusion! The Star Wars team recommends serving them with syrup and fresh fruit.


Chewbacca Mask

This mask actually replicates Chewbacca’s face and sound, and is sure to give you and your family a laugh.

One satisfied customer writes “I may not be as famous as the Chewbacca Mom but I have been every bit as HAPPY since I received my mask! I’ve worn it in so many places and have had a BLAST with it…..and I’m definitely older than the recommended 4-year-old. Driving around in it is the best and perfectly safe as the eye holes are plenty big to see peripherally! Of COURSE they would be! Chewbacca has to be on the alert for the dark side at all times!! Buy one of these and you will ONLY be on the BRIGHT side and the FORCE of LAUGHTER WILL be with you!! I may have to buy a few more for friends. She was right….WORTH EVERY PENNY!”

I think we all remember (and love) Chewbacca mom:
