Will My Daughter Ever Like Star Wars?
My 8 year old is unusual – she does not like movies. We had “no TV under 3” policy at home, and she didn’t grow up with TV in the background. When we attempted to introduce Disney movies to her at around 4, she found them very intense, and it’s almost impossible to convince her to watch a fiction movie. This is funny, because she loves fantasy books and has no problems with intense scenes in the books. Anyway, no amount of convincing made her want to watch Star Wars even though she is quite familiar with the story line – obviously, kids are talking about movies with each other in school. I am hoping that she will discover Star Wars just as we discovered them – as a young teenager, and then she will fall in love with them (of course, I am referring only to the original trilogy here :))
Playing with Lego Star Wars Sets
Since our daughter is not into Star Wars, she doesn’t have her own Star War sets, but my husband and I exchanged Lego Star War presents before. He got Luke’s Landspeeder from the first movie, and I have a small X-Wing Fighter. I thought that it would be fun to build some Star War landscapes for our landspeeder to celebrate Star Wars Force Day of May 4th.
Magic Milk Star War Landscape
Setting up this landscape is very simple – all you need is milk, food coloring, and dishwasher detergent. Drop some food coloring into milk, dip a q-tip into dishwasher detergent and start creating your landscape.
Soda and Vinegar Star Wars Landscape
This time we put vinegar into small pill bottles and added food coloring to it. Then we used a medicine dropper to create fizzy craters in soda landscape.
What landscape would you build? I have ideas for a few more, perhaps for the next year!
