Jessica made light sabers out of cardboard tubes for the kids. The object of the game was to keep balloons from touching the floor.

She played the Star Wars theme music in the background while the kids hustled to keep the balloons afloat.

When the music switched to Darth Vader's theme song, Jessica's husband entered the room dressed in a helmet and black pants, boots and a cape. Although she was also playing Darth Vader's deep-breathing sound effect over the music, she says it couldn't be heard over the kids' squeals as they attacked their evil nemesis.
