I really enjoy hosting birthday parties for my kids. It’s fun to pick out a theme together and plan decorations, food, and entertainment. Seeing the smile on their face is priceless. I use Pinterest for inspiration ideas.
When the kids arrived to Gianna’s hawaiian Luau party we had a wardrobe rack set up and each friend received a grass skirt and lei to wear. The table was set with Moana coloring sheets and crayons. I wanted to keep them busy and happy.
For entertainment I hired a Polynesian hula dancer. She taught the kids how to hula dance, they played games, limbo, read a story, and near the end, had a parade outside and parachute fun. She held their attention for an hour.
Then the kids had a snack which included goldfish, pretzels, and chips. And for drinks pineapple cups filled with water. We sang happy birthday and the kids ate cupcakes with hawaiian flowers on them and beach umbrellas. I like the idea of cupcakes for a kids party. It’s less of a mess.
At the end of the party, each friend left with a luau goody bag which included a beach ball, hibiscus pen, Moana stickers and a flamingo lollipop.
For the Luau fun I purchased most of the supplies from Amazon; including the grass skirts, flower hair clips, leis, garland, goody boxes, and even my kids Hawaiian outfits. The Moana party paper goods and balloons came from Party City.
To top off Gianna’s 5th birthday later that night the Kona Ice truck made a special trip to our house just for Gianna. Kona Ice is shaved flavored ice. She was so surprised and told me that was that was the best part of her birthday. “You’re Welcome” for the Moana birthday party ideas.
