In our household, Star Wars has been and continues to be a huge obsession. If I let them, I am pretty sure they would sit and watch Star Wars movies, the Clone wars cartoons, the Lego Star Wars movies and every Star Wars parody ever made all in one day. I would like to say it’s just the kids, but that really isn’t true — Mr. Train and I are also fans and love watching our kids grow to love these movies that were made before even we were born. It seemed natural to include a Star Wars week in our summer plans because I knew we would all have a great time.
My son Joe was desperately waiting for this week. At his school book fair in the spring he picked out a book called Star Wars: Science fair book. Ever since he got it he has been begging for me to do some of the projects. As we read through the different experiments, I realized that a lot of them were a little involved for a 5 year old. I really didn’t want to pick experiments that I would do while they watched; I wanted them to actively participate. I also was trying to find ones that were free or very inexpensive. So I picked two out of the book and started our week off with some Star Wars Science.
I don’t know if you can tell, but a love of Star Wars runs throughout our entire family.
