He was super excited when I suggested we decorate his room in a Star Wars theme.
I've been dying to try cutting vinyl on my new Silhouette Portrait. I think it turned out pretty cute, and now he is referring to himself as Jedi Master Ethen.
I haven't figured out a good way to display these Legos yet. I think that it would be fun to hang the planets from the ceiling somehow. But I do want them accessible for play. For now they are on his bookshelf.
I'll admit that I was giddy when I found these lightsabers on Amazon. They mount to the wall and can be used as a nightlight. They come in all different colors or you can buy one that does all the colors in one. They make the lightsaber sound when you turn them on and off.
Ethen spends more time playing with it than it does on the wall, but I love that I have a place I can put it at bedtime. The light will turn off after 15 minutes.
Lastly, his bookshelf now has a place for some plush Star Wars characters. Now he can have sweet dreams while clinging to the Death Star. What's not to love?
