Are your children Disney Moana fans? If so, throw a Moana birthday party and be sure to incorporate the beautiful bright colors, gorgeous ocean scenes, lush foliage, and precious treasures that Moana’s village has to offer. Your birthday child will sing, dance and play along, fueled by these cute and colorful Moana birthday party ideas.
What is Moana?
Moana is an animated Disney motion picture that chronicles the story of Moana, the strong-willed daughter of the chief of a Polynesian tribe, who is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite a mystical relic with a goddess. When a blight strikes her island, Moana sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod, in the hope of saving her people.
Moana Birthday Party Essentials
If we have said it once, we have said it a hundred times, keep your party simple. To host a Moana birthday party (or for that matter any and all children’s parties) there are only a few essentials:
Even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation. Think of all the time your own child spends looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.
In addition to using Moana paper goods, consider adding a few luau tiki torch props, palm trees, and colorful tissue poms. It would also be fun to use raffia and seashell table skirts and leis are an inexpensive way to add that tropical feel. Similarly, at just $1.26/each, these flower hair clips are can also be used as table decor.
We also found these printable party decorations and always love a balloon bouquet to up the fun factor of any child’s party!
We highly recommend serving lots of fruits & vegetables in festive presentations. Think fruit kabobs and everything that you can think of cutting using Moana cookie cutters.
We also love the idea of using Hawaiian Princess cupcake wrappers not only for desserts but as little serving dishes. You can fill them with candies but we highly recommend filling them with pieces of pineapple and other fruits. And although we personally do not love the taste of rock candy, it does look great on a table!
1. A “doing” activity such as a home “Moana treasure hunt” 2. a craft activity such as coloring printable coloring pages 3. a game activity like pin the tail, bingo, or a matching game. 4. End your party with a chance to break the Piñata. As the kids get older, the same activities work just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component.
