Luau Lei – you can buy Lei’s for everyone but why not make them, the children will enjoy this. Buy fabric petals from a craft store or as we saw at one party, cut off the top half of paper cupcake holders. Make a game but seeing who finishes first or judge for the best one!
Limbo – Any large stick will do (Broom handle), put on some upbeat music, form a line then get everyone to try to limbo under the stick. After everyone has had a go, lower the stick then have then try again. The one left that get the lowest is the winner.
Hula Hoop Contest - Who can last the longest with the Hula Hoop?
Think Fruit, lot’s of fruit and food from the ocean!

Sea Sandwiches – Tuna, use a cookie cutter to make shapes; star fish, sea shells
Shrimp Cocktail – buy a large shrimp ring and place shrimp in several tall, wide rimmed glasses (margarita glasses work well) place sauce in the middle.
