When your 3 and a half-year-old breaks into ‘How Far I’ll Gooo…o-o’ and ‘What is wrong with me?!’ just about anywhere, it’s not tough to decide upon the theme for his/her next birthday party. If all this makes no sense to you, you probably haven’t watched Moana.
Check out the fun we had at H’s Moana Party after the jump!
H has watched the movie about 30 times and if you are keen, she can happily tell you the story too.
As you know that we have recently moved into a new home, this year’s party was supposed to happen in our living room unlike our last year’s Dora party, which happened on the terrace of our previous home. All this meant, limited space, limited decorations but truck loads of fun.
We started with the invitations. I would have conveniently sent one on watsapp but H wanted to go and invite her friends personally. We made these cutesy Moana’s canoes using old newspapers with invitation written in hand on the sail.
The birthday banner resulted out of a free printable that found here.
To bring the Hawaiian feel to the party, I got some floral garlands and tiaras, which girls happily wore and posed on our hand made photobooth.
I made this in flat 30 mins a night before the party using a thermocol sheet , colours and Moana and Maui cut-outs.
Food was made at home. We had jelly boats, mac-n-cheese, carrot & mayo sandwiches and caramel croissants.
To keep the little ones engaged we played ‘Pin The Tail to Pua.’ You can get the print out of Pua and its tails here. We also read out Moana’s story from the book, which was loved by all.
As a party favour we asked every kid to save a turtle just like Moana does in the and take it home.
Hiyashaa had a great time at her party enjoying with her friends and was totally in her element enjoying all the attention.
Now that I look at the pictures, I realize that we don’t have even a single family shot where my super excited girl is still. But not everyday is perfect, but who cares!
