Before Christmas we threw my son a Star Wars party for his 5th birthday. He is a HUGE Star Wars fan, and he had been talking about this party pretty much since his last birthday party was over. As always, I tried to make as many of the party elements myself as possible, and we tried to keep the cost down to as little as possible. It’s the memories and the fun that count, not the price tag.
I often use Punchbowl or Evite for birthday party invitations, but when the party theme is something as heavily merchandized as Star Wars you can’t count on them to have cards that will match the theme. When I was searching online to make a video invitation like I did for my daughter’s Mickey Mouse party, I happened upon this free Star Wars’ crawl creator. It was the perfect way to create fun Star Wars invitations for my son’s birthday party!
EDIT: I originally shared this post back when StarWars.com had a crawl creator which they eventually stopped supporting. I want to say a HUGE thank you to reader, Becky Toth, for finding a functional alternative!
This website allows you to customize a Star Wars crawl just like the ones at the beginning of every Star Wars movie, complete with opening music! It’s such an iconic part of the Star Wars movies, so it is a perfect way to start the theme for a Star Wars party.
All you need is to type in a introductory paragraph, add your party details and hit “Preview”! Then you can download the crawl and share it with your entire guest list! Easy, fun, and perfect for a Star Wars theme!
