Where has the time flown? I blinked and it’s 2017! Happy New Year everyone!
The family and I finally got to see the Disney movie, Moana. We loved the story, the songs and the endearing characters. My six year old daughter, Emmy especially loved Pua the pig. Her 7th birthday is coming up end of the month and Emmy requested a Moana themed party.
When it comes to kids birthday parties, I try to keep purchasing party décor and games to a minimum. At first, Emmy suggested that we have a game “Pin the Bow tie on Pua” but my oldest daughter Lil chimed in and asked, “How is that Hawaiian theme? Shouldn’t a lei be more appropriate?” Emmy completely agreed and the “Pin the Lei on Pua” game came to be.
Here’s what you need for this super easy DIY Pin The Lei on Pua:
1 Black Sharpie
White Sheet of paper (11 X 17)
Basket Weave Paper Liner
Lei Clip Art image
Double sided tape
Cardboard (24 X 36)
First, draw Pua, using your sharpie and paper. Next, open word document and select Lei clipart and adjust size accordingly to fit Pua’s neck. I reused one of our packing boxes and cut it out to 24 X 36. This will be the base of our game’s backdrop. Attach basket weave paper liner on top of cardboard. You may also, use gift wrapping paper with a Hawaiian theme. Next, cut out Pua illustration and attach to cardboard backdrop. Print out lei clipart and cut out. Attach double sided tape to lei cut outs. Put Pua board on wall and you’re ready to play!
