The last time I needed Star Wars and Yoda party ideas was when my now-adult kids turned 8 and 9 years old. Thirteen years ago we served Yoda Soda (and Princess Punch) at the local Papa Gino’s pizza restaurant near Boston.

My two oldest kids are one year and one day apart. So for my son, the theme was a Star Wars party and for my daughter a Princess Party; with all of their classmates invited.
A few months prior, I had found an old tattered book at the thrift store called, The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookie Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes. We really didn’t use it for recipes though, it was just a fun book for the kids to thumb through. The book itself survived many years, eventually losing it’s binding though, it wound up in the recycle bin.
Fast forward many years later, the older kids were chatting fondly about this book with my youngest. He seemed interested so I hopped over to Ebay and found the same book, in much better condition, with all of its stickers intact. If nothing else, I figured it would make a great item to add to his Star Wars collection. The
The book, to be honest, the book is kind of ridiculous in terms of ‘recipes’ Essentially it is just regular food with a Star Wars name twist. Nothing too spectacular. Think Han-Burgers and Hoth-Chocolate. But, it is fun to own.
But there was one cute ‘recipe’ that I adapted for the party called Yoda Soda. The cookbook called for seltzer, sherbet and food coloring but I figured I could recreate the same thing with just sherbet and Sprite.
This was a much easier option for a crowd of 35 kids and their parents in a pizza shop dining room.
I simply poured in some Sprite, mixed around a spoonful or two of green sherbet to color the soda, added some extra sherbet to the top and done! You could even serve these in small, clear shot glasses and truly make them a Baby Yoda snack idea!
Who is Baby Yoda?
Unless you’ve been living under a Kyber Crystal for the past few months, you’ve seen or heard about Baby Yoda. You know, “The Child” that the Mandalorian rescued in the Disney Plus series.
Baby Yoda is everywhere and his popularity isn’t waning soon. So you’re likely going to run into a kid (or adult) somewhere that wants a Baby Yoda themed birthday party, or Baby Yoda party food and snacks.
We’re going to see some adorable Baby Yoda Halloween costume ideas as well, I’m sure.
