May The 4th Be With You

Earlier today my friend Alex told me that today was “National Star Wars Day”, and then proceeded to say “may the fourth be with you.”  Now mind you I was clueless at first until he explained, because I am not into Star Wars what-so-ever.

Ever since he mentioned this, all I have heard or seen has to deal with Star Wars.  So todays post has to do with Star Wars.

I was looking for fun and creative treats to make so you can celebrate today and I think I came upon some pretty good recipes.

1) May the Fourth Be With You Push-Up Pops

2) Skywalker Smoothie

3) Jedi Juice Pops

4) Wookie Cookies

5) Yoda Soda
