We had a Star Wars: The Last Jedi Viewing Party While on Vacation

Building and Fun

This past weekend we had a little mini vacation to the Cape Codder Resort and Spa, but when we weren’t in the water park we were in the room. On Saturday afternoon we took the time to enjoy a family viewing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We were provided a bunch of great stuff to have this in home viewing party. We received a box full of great Star Wars: The Last Jedi stuff including a Storm Trooper Plush Throw, Star Wars: The Last Jedi Napkins, Star Wars: The Last Jedi Paper Masks, BB-9E Plush – 6”, BB-8 Plush – 7 ½”, Porg Plush – 9”, Star Wars: The Last Jedi Treat Cups and Popcorn. We also received a copy of the movie on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital. I had loaded the movie onto my iPad before our trip in anticipation of watching it during out downtime. I also added in a Star Wars: The Last Jedi LEGO set that I bought before the movie but saved to build with the kids.

The biggest hit of the entire in-home viewing kit was the stuffed Porg. The kids took turns being the keeper of the Porg, over and over again. The Porg was everywhere, just like in the movie. And, once we got home the kids worked out a system in which one child would keep the Porg for the weekend and the other during the week. They really loved that thing. Andrew got it for this photo.

The Battle of the Porgs

So, we popped the popcorn and enjoyed out new stuffed characters. We also watched around the little table and ate the popcorn while building the LEGO set. As we were building we got to the part where Finn and Rose went in search of the code-breaker and the kids recognized the ship that they were building. It was a fun afternoon of family downtime and more bonding over a franchise that we all love dearly.

Movie Time Star Wars The Last Jedi

Since we weren’t home we couldn’t make anything besides the microwave popcorn that was in our viewing kit but had we been home then we could have tried out some Star Wars: The Last Jedi recipes like the ones below. Just click the image to download the recipes.

Trying out a Gummy Recipe!

Dinosaur Gummi
Photo-A-Day #4306

I give making gummys a shot. Working it out before I do it tomorrow night with SteamDads! I wasn’t sure how difficult it would be to make some gummis so I wanted to try it out. When I get a recipe now I have to make sure it works out before we start filming. We’ve had a few experiments go, not quite according to plan and take longer than expected. So now I have a decent idea of how long the creation takes. I also know which of the molds work best for these and it just so happens that the Dinosaur mold is perfect. The LEGO one is pretty good, too. The hearts were more difficult but for the most part everything came out really well.

I only used the Jello for the flavor. I’ve heard that there are other ways to flavor the gummis and even using crushed up Vitamin C makes them sour. I may even look into using the Warheads drops to try something in another batch.
