Halloween Pumpkin Yoda! (Practical Mondays #33)


I’ve never watched Star Wars. It is *so weird* to say that out loud, since I’m known a film and television buff and have seemingly watched everything under the sun from teeny bopping Twilight to the subtle, character driven Better Call Saul.


I’ve never watched Star Wars! And whatever I know of it is through the witty repartees that come out of the genius heads of Sheldon, Raj, Howard & Leonard. The three fingered Master Jedi was not only a super popular choice for TV & movie themed Pumpkin Contest at school, it was also the easiest to make; since it didn’t require any carving! 


While we painted the pumpkin and attached the ears with wooden skewers, I switched on Netflix and showed my son bits & pieces of one of the earliest movies with the unrecognisable Harrison Ford. Maybe we should commit this long plan-less weekend to Star Wars family nights?

{BTW we won the contest! 
But the bigger prize was all those young boys pausing, staring, touching and exclaiming in awe!}
