Light Sabers - I made mini edible light sabers using gluten-free pretzel sticks dipped in melted dairy-free white chocolate chips (plus a little coconut oil to thin it out,) then rolled in dye-free natural red and blue sugar sprinkles.

Pew Pew! - I made Z a jello shape in my Millenium Falcon ice mold. When I found them on sale at Think Geek, I bought all the Star Wars molds they had! Merry Christmas to ME! Yes, I know the Millenium Falcon is for the "good guys." But I couldn't resist!
The dye-free vegetarian gelatin I bought is no longer available, but I've found dye-free gelatin using animal products, or vegetarian gelatin that uses artificial colors and flavors. In instances like this, I always choose natural over ethical, and buy the dye-free animal gelatin when I'm too lazy to make my own with juice and agar agar.
To go along with the red theme for the Dark Side, Z got a star pick in her edamame and a star cup to hold her blueberries.

Instead of making a shaped sandwich too, I just gave E the scraps, tucked under some edible light sabers.
Little Sis got a thicker star pick, with the plaid design turned away. I love these short and sturdy picks for my little one, since there's less risk of breakery.
