The force is strong with these candy lightsabers! After Christmas my place is Star Wars everything. My daughter is the biggest Star Wars fan, Darth Vader in particular. All she wanted for Christmas was a Darth Vader costume and a red lightsaber. She is all about the dark side of the force. I should maybe be concerned that she already at 4 has a thing for the bad guys. If we are watching a movie she always wants the parts with the bad guys. My adorable little weirdo! That is why I needed to make some kind of Star Wars dessert and these candy lightsabers were really easy to make.
We are officially in October, which means Halloween all day every day! Yes, I have been getting ready for the past month but now it is socially acceptable. My daughter doesn’t always like to hang up the decorations. She has a very specific idea of what she wants to do with everything. Usually the places she chooses to put things are in the middile of the room or right in the way of where we walk or in the bathroom. I have different ideas so we have a bit of a power struggle. Strong willed 4 year olds definitely let their opinion known but I find a way to win in the end. I thought we needed a Halloween craft that she could do whatever she wanted with and put it anywhere. That way she isn’t interested in my decorations. We made this spider web candy craft and it was an easy activity she loved. The great thing is there are so many ways to make a spider web. You can also eat it too!
