We are big Star Wars fans at our house. In fact my son is dying to visit Galaxy’s Edge. And every time I’ve gone to Disneyland without him, he requests me to bring him home some of the Blue Milk.
We have seen all the Star Wars movies together, including my 6 year old daughter, and we are totally into the Mandalorian on Disney +. We’ve all been counting down the days for the final installment of the series. The kids can not wait to see the movie.
Rise of Skywalker Movie Review
I had the opportunity to go to an advanced screening of the movie. And I don’t even know where to start in telling you my thoughts on it. Rest assured though, there are no spoilers here. I feel like everyone should have the same opportunity to see the movie as I did. I watched the trailers, more than once each, but I stayed away from media on any spoilers so I could just enjoy the movie as intended.
Let me start off with saying, bring the tissues. This movie has a rollercoaster of emotions. From jaw dropping moments, laughs and full on ugly crying. There are for sure some surprises, but it sticks to a similar Star Wars flow that we know and love about the Star Wars films.
There are some intense scenes, not blood and gore, but intense enough that make me hesitant to bring my 6 year old. It could be a little scary for her. Even though she has seen the others. I felt this one had a little more. If you have a little one that is prone to nightmares, I might see it first before bringing the family.
I’ll be honest. I don’t dive deep into the hidden meanings of things and follow all the story lines and history and what not. If a movie makes me feel fulfilled and keeps me entertained, I’m all about it and I will recommend it. I loved the movie and was on the edge of my seat from the start. I’d also recommend no potty breaks. You don’t want to miss a thing!
DIY Star Wars Shirts
We are planning to take the kids to see the show, but even more exciting, we are going to be making my son’s wish of visiting “Star Wars Land” and getting some blue milk come true. An occasion like this called for some DIY shirts.
For this project you will need:
Star Wars Shirt Designs in Cricut Design Space
Once you click on the Design Space link above, the designs will open and you can click either customize or make. I recommend clicking customize. The designs will open on a new canvas. You will be able to resize the designs to the desired size. You could also turn off one of the designs if you are only wanting to make one of the designs.
When you’re ready to cut the design, click make it and make sure to mirror image the design when using iron-on vinyl. Continue to select the cutting machine and material. Place the iron-on vinyl shiny side down on the cutting mat. Load into the machine and press the blinking go button.
Unload the mat once it’s done cutting and weed the unwanted vinyl, leaving the design on the plastic carrier sheet. The design will be backwards. Flip it over so the plastic carrier sheet is on top and place the vinyl onto your shirt. Heat your EasyPress to correct settings for your project.
Use the EasyPress and with some light pressure, press the design to the shirt.
Remove the plastic carrier sheet. If some of the vinyl tries to come up with the carrier sheet, lay the carrier sheet down and press the shirt for a few more seconds.
I can NOT wait for my son to wear these in the park. They both turned out so fun.
So which of your Star Wars fans will you be making these for?
