Complimentary movie night kit provided by Disney. All views are my own.
Moana is now available on Blu-ray and DVD and what better way to celebrate than with these adorable Moana party ideas. Last weekend, before the Blu-ray release, we were thrilled to watch it digitally with the help of the Disney anywhere app and Google Chromecast. Simply watching the movie was fun, but we wanted to make an entire experience out of watching Disney’s newest video release.
We hosted an at home Moana movie night with our close friends that was complete with crafts, toys, decor, games and a viewing of the movie that celebrates ancestry and family.
Reese and I consider the Ferguson’s our family. I have been friends with her since high school (That’s a long time)! Watching our own children grow up together has been a treat indeed. We want to make our own traditions and seeing them celebrate Moana was fun!
Throw a Disney at home watch party with our Moana Party Ideas
Granted our children are preschoolers so many of our Moana activities were geared for their age: painting, eating treats and playing ball toss in buckets. For older children, consider exploring their ancestors and family history the way Moana does in the film.
Are there certain family traditions, recipes or stories that you want your children to embrace?
If you haven’t watched Moana yet you can tell by the film’s trailer that the movie is filled with color, wonder and beautiful landscape that the Island life provides.
Incorporate bright and bold colors throughout your party decor. I had shells, sand buckets, shovels, and a net to spruce up the table. Thanks to Disney we had plenty of Moana swag to decorate and to keep the kids entertained. They learned all about sharing; Thankfully there were no fights. We also gave them leis and bows for their hair while letting them eat sea themed foods like goldfish and pirate booty snacks in small buckets.
Games & Crafts
Before the movie we had the kids toss balls into different sized sand pails to work on their fine motor skills.
The kids painted periscopes using toilet paper rolls and seashells while the adults made Moana ships.
Using a Q tip, the kids painted the heart of the sea on the ships!
Once the movie started we got comfy and snuggled with Pua (the adorable sidekick pig).
To our surprise, the girls would get up to dance and sing along with Moana and Maui.
The next day the girls asked to have another Moana party and watch it again. I would say that is a success – even Gus the dog got in on the fun.
Kids can continue to fun long after the movie airs with these free Moana coloring sheets.
